Holy Rosary School students and Nativity of Our Lord parishioners, Duryea, continued their annual Thanksgiving food drive for the Little Sisters of the Poor. During a special Mass on November 23 at theSacred Heart of Jesus Church site, the Sisters received an abundant assortment of non-perishable food items to help them feed the elderly poor who they care for at Holy Family Residence, Scranton.
The Little Sisters of the Poor, who have been serving the elderly poor in Northeastern Pennsylvania since 1908, work closely with staff, volunteers, and benefactors in creating a family spirit for the residents. They welcome the elderly who have limited funds and provide for their needs so they can live their last years in an atmosphere of respect, dignity, and love.
