Approximately fifty members of Our Lady of Good Counsel CYO, along with some parent volunteers, recently gathered in the school gym to assemble "breakfast bags" to benefit Aid for Friends.
Each bag contains: a juice box, packet of oatmeal, cereal, tea bags, peanut butter crackers and breakfast bars. Aid for Friends will deliver the bags to isolated, homebound individuals that live in the greater Philadelphia area.
In all, over 500 breakfast bags were filled from donations made by the parishoners of OLGC.
OLGC CYO also continues to collect food for the Southampton Food Bank housed by Jesus Focus Ministry on Bristol Rd.
Donations are collected at Masses held on the third Sunday of each month.
January's collection netted another 3 boxes of food for the Food Bank.
OLGC thanks all of those who are "giving back" to the Southampton community.
