Help OLA supply homeless with necessities
In the patio area of Our Lady of the Assumption Church, a shopping cart is parked by the church’s door and is where residents can drop off much needed food items that will go toward feeding the homeless.
The church is asking residents to bring the following items to said cart: canned Chef Boyardee Ravioli, bottle water, and individual bags of chips. Many of these are available in bulk at big box stores or online. Donations will be distributed by an OLA ministry to homeless individuals on our local streets.
Residents may also help defray the cost of the grocery bags, which are about $10 to $12 each by making out a check to “OLA” with a memo for “homeless snack bags.”
OLA is located at 435 Berkeley Avenue in Claremont. For more information about the initiative, contact the parish office at (909) 626-3596, ext. 0.
