Holidya Food Drive at Holy Apostles Orthodox Church, Saddle Brook, NJ

Holy Apostles Orthodox Church, Saddle Brook, NJ — Hunger is 365 Days. The Holiday Food Drive at Holy Apostles Orthodox Church attempted to assist Eva’s Village in Paterson, NJ at providing meals for the Homeless and those in their Residence and Shelters with Food to prepare and distribute to those needing nutrition during this time of year.

Eva’s Village distributes Two Meals to 300 Needy People on the Street every day. They also help with providing a place to sleep to 300 People every night in their Residences and Shelters, including the Residence at Hope Center for Moms with their Children...all who are also provided with meals….

A “Packed” Car of Canned, Frozen, and Packaged Foods was delivered to Eva’s Village on 16 December. This Project was coordinated by Reader John Holoduek, with the supervision of Deacon John Holoduek, here pictured with Marie Caliendo, Eva’s Village Director of Giving. The Parishioners of Holy Apostles Church, although a small community, are Witnessing that The Gospel is being Proclaimed and Put into Action! This year, Holy Apostles had the help of the Passaic Arts and Science Charter HS National Honor Society, with additional donations!

An Icon of the Ancestor of Christ, St. Anna, was presented for Hope Center… that the Grandmother of Jesus would watch over the Shelter and intercede for their needs and protection.
