BABY BOTTLE CAMPAIGN

Saint Frances de Chantal parish will be hosting a Baby Bottle Fundraiser to benefit Birthright & The Life Center of Long Island. These pregnancy centers counsel women and men who are experiencing an unplanned pregnancy.

Did you know that they provide free pregnancy tests, maternity housing with eligibility requirements, medical care, referrals, cribs, car seats, diapers, and all other baby items that may be needed

We are asking that you pick up a baby bottle and fill it with your change. We only received 100 bottles this year, but we still need your help. 

Please support this fundraiser by placing your donation in an envelope addressing it to Birthright or The Life Center of Long Island and drop it in the collection basket or the blue box.

Let us pray with our whole heart for the
lives of our unborn children.

Knights of Columbus partner with Stop & Shop

Your Knights of Columbus supports the efforts of our Saint Frances Outreach.

The Knights have partnered with Stop & Shop to help those in need. Please see how you can support this awesome program and make many people happy (with flowers) and others fed.

Thank you,
Deacon Bob, Chaplain

Every month, we receive a check from Stop & Shop from the Bloomin’ 4 Good Program.

We encourage our parishioners to help fight hunger with this program.

What is the Bloomin’ 4 Good Program?

Fight hunger with every bouquet of flowers sold! Each time a shopper purchases the specially marked $10.99 Bloomin’ 4 Good Bouquet, $1 is donated to a local hunger organization selected to benefit for the month.

$1 Donation = 10+ Meals. It’s as simple as that!

Every bouquet sold works to fight hunger across the local communities served by Stop & Shop.
