Holy Spirit says it doesn’t need pasta, canned vegetables or canned beans at this time, except for whole wheat or gluten-free pasta. It also doesn’t need more  baby diapers now. Donations can be dropped off at any time in the bin located just outside the parking lot door of the church building at 36 Gould Street (opposite the middle school field).

In addition to food, the church also accepts donations to buy low inventory items and provide gift cards to shoppers. The Food Pantry is a ministry of the Episcopal Church of the Holy Spirit and your financial donation is tax deductible.
