Operation Brown Bag

To Benefit
Sharing Parishes

Hungry, homeless people come to the rectory doors and visit the parish food pantries of our four sharing parishes daily in search of food. Our Sharing Parishes are often able to respond with brown lunch bags filled with non-perishable food.  Sr. Paulanne also regularly distributes these bags to local needy.  These easy-to-assemble bags are donated by OLPH individuals, families, and groups.

Consider making up a few or get a group together and make up even more.  No quantity is too big or too small.

Please use larger sized lunch bags and double the bags for durability.  Bags can be delivered to the Sharing Room on Sunday mornings or whenever volunteers are present.  Contact Julie Cooper, 847-909-0661, jmcooper1029@comcast.net,  for further information.
