Helping at St. George's Food Pantry - 12/28/05

Youth and Adult Participants at the 2005 Winter Youth Retreat spend the day helping at St. George's Food Pantry and with its special Nativity Distribution held at St. George's Orthodox Church in Pharr. Besides the usual boxes of food given to each family, warm jackets or coats, blankets, bags of candy, toys and Christmas Stockings provided by the OCA were shared with over 70 FAMILIES who came that day!
