Harvest House/ Casa de la Cosecha

After another record-setting Thanksgiving food pantry distribution on Friday, November 20th, we officially marked the opening of our new food pantry building, the Harvest House/Casa de la Cosecha.

We celebrated with a small, socially-distanced service of thanks, prayers, and a blessing, which we invite you to watch.

Thank you to all who have contributed to get this much needed building complete.  Special thanks is extended to Chris Colomello of Ducillo Construction who completed the building on time and under budget; to Jeffrey Breitman and Leo Blackman for the initial drawings and architectural design and project management; and to Co-Warden Jim Wright who spent countless hours overseeing the project.

Most importantly, we extend our deepest thanks to all of our neighbors who helped fund this building:
