I would like to help

Here are ways you can help:

Would you like to Volunteer?

If you are interested in Volunteering, please contact Mrs. Kimberly Santiago at scsfoodpantry@gmail.com.

Due to the coronavirus, all volunteers must wear a mask at all times on St. Anthony’s property. Due to the need to social distance, we are limited in the number of volunteers in the building at one time, so please speak with our volunteer coordinator before coming to volunteer.

Student volunteering will continue to be postponed until we're able to resume normal pantry service. Once student volunteering is permitted again, the Sign-Up Genius page will be updated. All students are asked to register online using our Sign-Up Genius page HERE.

Volunteer opportunities:

  • Pantry preparations on Monday and Tuesday mornings

  • Unloading deliveries from the food bank (various mornings)

  • Serving at the pantry on Monday and Tuesday evenings (the fathers and brothers cover the pantry on Friday mornings)

  • Picking up fresh vegetables from the markets

  • Picking up donations of food from family and friends and bringing them to the pantry

  • HabCore food preparation and delivery (currently suspended)

  • Volunteer for the Salve Regina Shop (currently suspended)

  • Translation services

  • Meal preparation and delivery with HabCore (currently suspended)

  • Working with the Giving Tree in November and December (see bulletin for details)

  • Setting up and caring for our fresh vegetable gardens

Would you like to donate financially?

Through online giving using the “Give to my parish” link at the top of the page. Just use the drop box to select “St. Crispin Society.”

Or simply make out a check payable to:

St. Anthony of Padua Church with “St. Crispin Society” written in the note line.

Your donations are greatly appreciated! Without your generosity, we would not be able to support our neighbors in need.

Would you like to donate food?

Donations can be dropped off at St. Crispin House at these times:

Monday & Tuesday 10:00 AM – 12 Noon & 5:45 PM – 7:00 PM

Saturday 10:00 AM – 12 Noon

Or you may leave your donation in the basket in the baptistery before the start of any weekend Mass.

Commonly needed items (please check the Facebook page or bulletin for any updates):

  • Rice

  • Cereal

  • Canned meat/chicken

  • Canned tuna

  • Tomato Sauce

  • Milk (shelf-stable)

  • Soup (not chicken)

  • Cooking oil

  • Black beans (can/bag)

  • Laundry soap

  • Personal care items

  • Disposable baby diapers (any size)

  • Condiments

The Food Pantry also accepts canned, boxed, bagged and packaged food items. Additionally, we are in need of fresh fruit and vegetables, especially from our home/community gardeners.

We ask that the fresh items be delivered on Mondays or Tuesdays between 10 a.m. and 12 noon so that the fruit and vegetables can be distributed on those evenings.

Would you like to donate clothing?

Unfortunately, we are unable to accept clothing donations at this time.

Would you like to be part of our Giving Tree donations?

This year we are asking for donations of $25.00 gift cards to the following stores:

  • Walmart

  • Target

  • Game Stop

  • Amazon

  • Old Navy

  • Rite Aid

  • ShopRite

  • Foodtown

  • VISA

  • MasterCard

  • American Express

  • Kohl's

  • Marshall's

We will also be providing gifts to a local nursing home. They are requesting new sweatpants & sweatshirts in various sizes, socks, & blankets. This establishment is home to many who do not have families who are able to provide these basic necessities and they are most appreciative of any help we can give them. Due to the pandemic, there have been incredible restrictions on outside visitation and any help we can provide would be a blessing. Click here to sign up to participate in the 2020 Giving Tree.
