Take and Eat
The Take and Eat program was started here at Holy Cross Parish 8 years ago. We buy food, prepare meals, put them together including a handmade and decorated card showing the menu, and deliver them to 80 people in the local area on the 4th Sunday of every month. There are 40 volunteers including, our wonderful chef, Christian Elmasian and our two coordinators, Deacon Mark Arthur Jean-Mary and Janet Denney. If you would like to help out or need a meal delivered, please call Jan Denney at 413-426-8248.
Parish volunteers have been preparing, packaging, and delivering meals to the elderly on the 4th Sunday of the month for the past eight years. There have been many volunteers throughout the years. Anne Gagnon and Joe Brown are two volunteers who have been with the program since its inception. Both Anne and Joe have decided to retire from this ministry. We wish them well and thank them for their dedication and hard work. Deacon Bill who had been a part of the program in the beginning came to thank them and wish them well too!
