Donations to our Mission Partners Saturday, May 20, 2023 9:30 AM-11:30 AM at St. Clare House

Updated: May 17, 2023

Our next regular donation collection for our Community of Givers ministry will be on Saturday, May 20th from 9:30 am to 11:30 am at St. Clare House.


Mission Ministries warmly thanks all of you who dropped off donated items in support of the work by our local community partners to nourish those in need over the past three years. Your love, generosity and support are greatly appreciated.

In these difficult times, Mission Ministries of St. Francis would like to continue to offer opportunities for those who want to help others in some way. St. Francis has three Mission Partners: Abby’s House, Mustard Seed, and Dismas Family Farm. We also partner with Laundry Love and the Wachusett Food Pantry. While we have entered a “new normal” post COVID, food scarcity remains a daunting problem for these group, given our current inflationary economy, increased homelessness and the expiration of various programs available during COVID.
