The Befriend-a-Family program at Our Lady of Perpetual Help assists over 200 needy families within our own community and those of our four Sharing Parishes. We provide food assistance at Thanksgiving, Easter, and Christmas, when we also donate gifts for the family.
The Sharing Ministry pairs OLPH individuals, families, and groups with beneficiary families, provides a family profile (names, ages, and sizes), and delivers donated goods.
Most giving is done anonymously and the relationship remains ongoing until the Sharing Parish family is no longer in need of assistance or if the OLPH party chooses to opt out.
This program provides a rewarding experience for those who give, and hope and assistance to those in true need.
