Easter Baskets to Feed the Hungry

Easter Basket Program

Thanks to the generosity of St. Anne’s parishioners, each year more than 100 needy families have received baskets of food and small gifts at Easter time. These are deserving families in the greater Annapolis area who are hard pressed to put food on their tables, families whose children sometimes go to bed hungry. Food Link and county social service workers have again identified many deserving families that are struggling and they are asking for our help. To ensure that good food is on the tables of these families this Easter, we are asking parishioners to fill a basket with food and small gifts for the kids. Baskets are generously provided from St. Anne’s budget; all we have to do is choose the size family we wish to help and fill a basket for them. Instructions are provided at the time of sign-up and flyers describing the program are in your pew. Sign-ups will take place at the back of the church March 19, March 26 and April 2. Those parishioners who have participated have found this to be a fun, rewarding family act of giving. While the Men’s Huddle is organizing this effort, volunteers to help with the program are needed. Call Gerard Trippitelli (410-507-6718) or email hmsurv@comcast.net for more information or to volunteer.
