Program Highlights

Ongoing Food Drive

The Sharing Ministry’s primary goal is to collect non-perishable food for the hungry. We accept non-perishable food year round. Food can be delivered to the Sharing Room at anytime, or placed in the marked baskets at the church entrances. Financial donations for food are also welcome. Contact parishioner Lou at 847.724.2178 for more information.

Emergency Brown Bag Meals for the Homeless

Hungry, homeless people come to the rectory doors and visit the parish food pantries of our four sharing parishes daily in search of food. Our Sharing Parishes are often able to respond with brown lunch bags filled with non-perishable food provided by OLPH.

What goes into a brown bag meal? Read the list of items and more details here.

ONGOING PROGRAMS

Donations of Clothing and Household Goods

OLPH accepts donations of gently used clothing and household items. Be mindful that volunteer man-hours on the receiving and delivery end are limited. Only gently used, clean, mended goods can be accepted.

Guidelines for Donations

Forty OLPH volunteers collect day old bakery goods from area merchants for distribution to Sharing Parish poor. Contact Chris at 847.962.0208 for more information.

The Meal Ministry provides temporary emergency meal assistance to families in the community in times of crisis, illness or bereavement. Contact Joanne at 847.729.2740 to volunteer.

Seasonal Parish Drives

OLPH collects canned hams during the two weekends prior to Easter and we collect frozen turkeys before Thanksgiving. New toys are collected several weeks prior to Christmas.

Mother’s Day Baby Shower

New baby items - formula, clothing, diapers, and furnishings - are collected in church each Mother’s Day for distribution to needy moms.

Housewarming For the Homeless

The Sharing Ministry collects new household items for people leaving the streets. OLPH Sharing will make sure your donations go directly to a family or individual who is setting up house for the first time in a long time. Please view the list of items needed.
