During Great Lent, we will be hosting a food drive to benefit the Bixby Outreach Center. Due to COVID-19, the BOC has seen an increased demand from families and individuals in need of assistance. In 2019, the BOC served 300 families per month. In 2020, the number of families increased to 600 per month. The BOC also delivers food to senior living apartment complexes in Bixby and Mounds monthly.
Please leave your nonperishable food donations in the parish hall through Saint Thomas Sunday, May 9th. The BOC accepts any non-expired nonperishable food items. If you would like to make a monetary donation, please denote the donation is for the Lenten Food Drive. At the end of the drive, we will use the funds received to purchase additional food to donate to the BOC.
