year St. Patrick’s Catholic Church holds the annual “Pine Bough Bazaar”. They
receive donations from area businesses to raffle off at this event. This year
the “Bazaar” was cancelled due to COVID 19, but the Freshman Faith Formation
class went ahead with the raffle. This year they chose to donate all the funds
to 3 areas that help feed the poor. The services provided by these
organizations are valuable and necessary in our present-day circumstances. When
they thought of all the people that these organizations have helped already and
think of the vast number of people still in need, they were strongly compelled
to help support these good causes. Donations of $365 each went to ‘Closer to
Home’, ‘the Good Shepherd Food Pantry’ and ‘Food for the Poor’. The items they
ordered for ‘Food for the Poor’ consisted of 1 goat (to give milk), 3 piglets,
6 fruit trees, 20 chickens, and 200 pounds of rice and beans. Pictured from
