Project Good: Catholic church feeds the hungry


Four times a year, regardless of weather, Saint Alphonsus Liguori Catholic Church in Zionsville collects food for The Caring Center in Lebanon. On those occasions, the church asks the entire parish to bring a bag or two of groceries to weekend Mass. On the weekend before, the church passes out black cloth bags for parishioners to fill and gives them a shopping list of items requested by The Caring Center. The church parks The Caring Center truck near the front door of the church, and churchgoers simply drop off the groceries as they head in to Mass. In all,  the church collected about 3,200 pounds of food Feb. 9 and 10.  Besides collecting food, the church conducts a blanket and coat drive, collects holiday gift donations, prepares children’s birthday boxes and provides volunteer support for The Caring Center.
