SHARE THE HARVEST

This is a major outreach program for St. Michael the Archangel Parish that is conducted annually.  The goal is to help those who are less fortunate have a Thanksgiving Meal.

Anyone in Hancock County is eligible to sign up to receive a food box.  Parishioners of St. Michael get involved by donating non-perishable food, making monetary contributions, preparing the boxes, and helping with delivery.

Monetary donations are used to purchase gift certificates, and to purchase food from the West Ohio Food Bank.   All families receive a gift certificate for the purchase of perishable food items.

BACKYARD MISSION TRIP

Instead of traveling long distances on a Mission Trip, in the spring churches in the Findlay area gather volunteers to do yard work, painting, and modest house repairs to homes in the community. This project is called the Backyard Mission Trip, and seeks to help out those local residents who are unable—for whatever reason—to do the work themselves. If you or someone you know would like to be part of this venture, either as a volunteer or if you know a family in need of repairs, call:

Cathy Mutchler, 419-425-5107
