SHINE’S Fill the Cruiser Event

Many times, when we think of stewardship, we tend to look to the adult members of our parish for their example of stewardship. But this week, our example of stewardship comes from the younger children of our parish, the SHINE Ministry.

“Last Saturday, we had 19 children, and several parents and SHINE adult advisors participate in “Fill the Cruiser” event at Devine’s Shop-n-Save. The children enjoyed passing out fliers that had suggestions for food contributions as they were so excited to ask the customers to please help them in their efforts.  Not only did they fill the entire cruiser with dry and canned goods, but they also filled half of a second vehicle as well! The children also collected $463.25 in monetary donations for our Food Pantry.

We are so thankful for the joyful spirit and enthusiasm of our young children as well as the generous support of all the customers who helped to make this event a huge success. We thank Devine’s Shop-n-Save for the use of their parking lot, the Hubbard Police Department for the cruiser and support, and all who donated to the great community ministry of stewardship! As we Shine, so do you!”  ~Lisa Love
