Brownbaggers Homeless Outreach

The Brownbaggers project serves the poor in NYC during the winter months. Since 2009 we have delivered thousands of lunches. Meeting monthly in the Parish Hall at 12:30pm, we assemble 100 brown bag lunches with food and clothing items donated by our volunteers. We then travel via subway to multiple Manhattan parks to distribute our lunches to those most in need, returning to Brooklyn by 3:30 pm. Dave Beaudry is the current director of our Brownbaggers Homeless Outreach Program.

Children under the age of 18 must to be accompanied by an adult. Please wear comfortable shoes and have your metro card charged.

Twenty-five volunteers are needed for these events. RSVP to: davebeaudry@gmail.com

Please consider donating warm socks, hats or gloves into the  Brownbaggers Donation Box which will be located in the vestibule of the church after every Mass. Any donations received will be distributed at that month’s Brownbagger event.

Also, financial donations used to purchase food items can be made in the Parish rectory. Thank you for your support.

*Just a reminder that all adults must be VIRTUS trained to attend.

ANNUAL CATHOLIC APPEAL

We encourage everyone to view the 2024 ACA Video online at
www.CFBQ.org/ACAVideo.

Your contributions to the Annual Catholic Appeal make a significant impact, aiding individuals in Brooklyn and Queens in ways beyond the capacity of any single parish.

Let us pray for the success of the 2024 Annual Catholic Appeal, envisioning a triumph that not only empowers us to extend love to those in need but also enables our hearts to respond to Jesus, who calls us to be in Communion, Participation and Mission.

We invite you to stand with St. Saviour in supporting the 2024 Annual Catholic Appeal.  The goal at St. Saviour is $64,900. Once we exceed our goal, we will then receive 100% of all fund raised above this figure directly back to our parish.

To donate, visit www.AnnualCatholicAppeal.org or text DONATE to 917-336-1255.
