Our mission of providing for those in need in our community has not changed. We continue to offer food assistance to anyone within the Holy Name Parish boundaries. Calls for help are received daily and we have a dedicated team of volunteers who prepare food hampers for clients. Grocery gift cards are also provided so clients can purchase perishable food items such as dairy items and produce. Clients are eligible to receive up to 6 hampers/year.

If you are aware of someone in need of emergency food support now or throughout the year, please have them call the Parish number and follow the instructions to leave a message for Holy Name Cares.
