Agape Food Pantry

St. Demetrios Community Outreach

The monthly Community Dinners, sponsored by St. Demetrios Church and its generous supporters, has really gained interest by those in need in the Warren community. We would like to expand this program and be able to distribute bags of groceries and essentials on a regular basis. We are asking for canned good, non-perishables, personal hygiene, toiletries, and cleaning supplies to be donated to the church so that we are able to put together bags to be distributed to families in need.
Our parish is blessed with kindhearted people who have been so generous with the Community Dinners and we know that this new aspect of the community outreach program, our Agape Food Pantry will be supported as well.
