THANK YOU TO BOY SCOUT TROOP #117 - The food collected from neighbors in the East End area of Altoona was shared by Saint Mark’s and Saint Michael’s in Hollidaysburg. Saint Mark’s supplied our People Helping People Program and Saint Michael’s supplied American Rescue Mission with food stuffs.
God Bless the Boy Scout Troop, their leaders, and Bonnie Pfeffer and her helpers for their thoughtfulness.
PEOPLE HELPING PEOPLE - There is a need for gift cards for gas such as Sheetz and other gift cards. Cards may be deposited in the collection basket or door slot at the Saint Mark Rectory.
