St. Benedict Food Pantry Gets $30,000 Gift
Christmas came a few days early this year for the St. Vincent de Paul Food Pantry at St. Benedict Church, Holmdel.
On Friday, Dec. 23, Dawn Guardino, an officer of the St. Vincent de Paul Society, graciously accepted a check for over $30,000 which was presented by several St. Benedict School Children. The money will benefit several local families in need.
Each year, the St. Benedict School P.T.A. Advent Project Committee chooses a beneficiary for its Advent Project. The project consists of mini events or fundraisers where the children of the school are 100% involved.
The committee co-chairs this year were Maryellen Farrell and Laura Promo, both school parents.
