Donate To St. Paul's Food Drive And Help Make A Difference

Here is a wonderful way to help those less fortunate and its as easy as dropping off a food donation at St. Paul's Episcopal Church on Clinton at the corner of Carroll Street.

"Only when we give joyfully, without hesitation or thought of gain, can we truly know what love means" Leo Buscaglia.
Saint Paul's Lenten Food Drive
