Grove Outreach


Glenn Rivera

Dear St. Hugh Family,

With the situation created by the Covid-19 pandemic, supplies in the Grove Outreach have dwindled. We are almost out of canned goods, cereals and other staples, and a lot of our suppliers don’t have anything.  Yet, the need continues to be great. Last week we served 150 families; 250 the week before that. It is for that reason that I now appeal to your generosity.

Our parish community has always done exceptionally well in supporting our efforts in the Grove Outreach, remembering that whatever we do for the least of our brothers and sisters we do for Jesus. Let us step up one more time and help them.

Below you will find a list of canned and other non-perishable foods that are usually given out at the Outreach. Please bring your donations to the parish office at any time and we will make sure that they are distributed in a timely manner.

Thank you for your generosity in helping feed God’s poor among us.

God bless you.

Fr. Luis R. Largaespada
