There are many opportunities to serve others. Here are some places to get started.

Support Reach Out food pantry  Reach Out is an ecumenically-supported food pantry located behind St. Catherine Parish in Morgan Hill, at 17400 Peak Ave.  They are open M-F 1pm-2:30pm for clients to pick up food.  During the open hours, volunteers are needed to greet clients, to bag groceries, and update the paperwork for each client. In addition, volunteers are needed to prepare some of the produce in the mornings. And donations of nonperishable foods and garden produce are welcome. (The nonperishable food we collect during the Sunday worship service goes here.)  If you’re interested in helping, contact Wanda to be connected to the Reach Out volunteer coordinator.
Coffee on Main Each Monday morning, we provide snacks and coffee to the day workers who gather on Main Street. Meet at the corner of Main St. and Depot St. at 7:45am. Contact Greg Huffman for more information.
