Spring Food Drive in Support of the Light House Center

St. Mary's Parish is unable to conduct our annual Spring Food Drive in support of the Light House Center due to the coronavirus shutdown of activities. The need however, continues to be as great as ever, so we are substituting with an online food drive.

Parishioners who wish to participate are requested to purchase food to donate to The Light House the next time you go out shopping for your family - no extra trips please. Please bring the items you are donating to the Light House (10 Hudson St., Annapolis, MD 21037) between Friday, April 17 and Sunday, April 26. Online shopping and delivery is an alternative and can eliminate the need to go out. Links to several grocery stores are below. You may also make a financial donation instead of food, if you prefer.

Attach this flyer to the items you donate or include it with them so it will be recognized as part of St. Mary's food drive.
