Community Needs Have Increased: Your help is greatly needed.

Thank you.

Which is given to Our Area Food Bank which is managed by St. Margaret Mary’s Church. This Food Bank was organized over 25 years ago to help meet the needs of the less fortunate in our community. It serves the residents of Lower Burrell and Upper Burrell. Clients must meet certain guidelines.

Each month 25-50 volunteers unload the delivery truck and break down the food in portions for each household. Clients are provided with food each month along with your donations.  If you have any questions as to how you can help the ministry or how you can become a recipient, please call the parish office at:  724-335-2336
