Mission Statement: Share Thy Bounty is a service program that reaches beyond the boundaries of our parish. Parishioners donate food items that become available to local organizations and agencies who in turn distribute to the working poor and to those in need.
Current Ministry Activities: The first Sunday of every month, parishioners bring bags of food to the Church Narthex before mass. Volunteers deliver and assemble the food for pick up at the Family Center. Our next Sharing thy Bounty is February 2nd and 3rd. Our receiving agency is St. Stephen's Food Pantry. Their needs are as follows: all non-perishable food, fruit and juices along with any and all personal care products, including socks for both adults and children. Donations may be left in the Donation Cart in the Narthex or brought to the Family Center after the 9 a.m. and 10:30 a.m. Mass. Come join us for a cup of coffee and a pastry while you are there!
Our receiving agency, Sandelwood Food Panty, located at 114 Beach City Road, Hilton Head Island, thanks the St. Francis by the Sea Parishioners for their generosity.
Current Volunteer Opportunities: Always looking for volunteers to handle Share Thy Bounty at various masses. Please see contact information above.
We are called to love the poor; those who are hungry, thirsty, ill; those who are strangers.
