Short Stacks for a Tall Cause

You’re invited to an Applebee’s® Flapjack Fundraiser Breakfast on Saturday, June 3rd, to support The Catholic Daughters of the Americas, Court St. Francis De Sales #2617.  Among their charitable works, the Catholic Daughters operate the Matthew 25 Food Cupboard at St. Mark’s Church.

The food cupboard provides groceries to about 100 local residents in need, on the 3rd Saturday of every month from 9:00 to 10:30 AM.  It takes a lot of fundraising to be able to do that and this is one of the events that helps.

The food cupboard was first established at St. Joachim’s church in 2010 and moved to St. Mark’s in 2013.  For More Information:   Tina Dambach 215-­779-­2054­.
