** Reaching Out!

Last week, a team of St Patrick's volunteers, shopped, chopped, prepared and served lunch for the graduating class of Canine Companion students and their care givers. Thanks to Chuck Wood, Miriam Casey, Stephanie Chapralis, Leslie Clark and Jean Derum. Respecting the fact that the beautiful companion dogs were working, we were able to visit and meet each of the students as they completed their two-week live-in training at Canine Companions for Independence Center in Santa Rosa. What a wonderful experience for all of us. –Jean Derum

F.I.S.H. needs volunteer drivers! Our drivers use their pickups, vans or SUVs to pick up donated food from markets in Santa Rosa. Drivers serve in teams of 2 every morning for a week, about once a month. If you can lift and carry boxes weighing up to 40 lbs. and can spare the time, you will be making a big contribution to the fight against hunger in our community. If you would like to learn more, contact Dennis Hansen. His phone number is at the bottom our Volunteer page.
