St. Elizabeth Center’s mission as a food pantry is to assist those in need in the Oil City area.
Each month, they provide 200-300 households with groceries, non-perishable items, fresh produce, meat, and health and hygiene items.
Director Douglas Kennedy says, “It is our hope that this food assistance will free up finances to help with other family expenses such as rent and utilities. The funds that we receive through Catholic Charities grants are essential to the continued existence of the St Elizabeth Center. Because of the generosity of donors, we can provide a variety of nutritious food to families in need as well as other household necessities.
We are humbled to be able to interact with our client families who have become our friends. With the help of the grant funds received, we can fulfill our calling to be Christ’s hands and feet.”
