Many made Christmas Program successful

The members of Massena’s St. Peter’s Outreach Ministry (formerly the St. Vincent DePaul Society) wish to extend our heartfelt thanks to the entire community for support of our 2022 Christmas Program. Your generosity enabled us to provide food to 1,010 individuals in 322 families and gifts to the 421 children in those families ensuring a brighter holiday for those in need.

Thanks to all those who donated financial support and purchased gifts for the children. We are so grateful to those who volunteered their time to pack food boxes and assist with our distribution.

Thank you, Secours family and other local knitters, for making so many warm hats and mittens. And we are most thankful to McDonald’s for its donation of hundreds of boxes. Our food boxes literally would be impossible without its generosity.

We thank the parishioners of St. Peter’s Parish and Massena Central Teachers who purchased gifts and Arconic for its Action Grant donation. Thanks also to Walmart’s Community Grant, Knights of Columbus Council 1141, Massena Fire Department, the AMVETS Post 4, AMVETS Ladies Auxiliary, Sons of AMVETS, BPO Elks 1720, Loyal Order of Moose Lodge 1110, Marine Corps League, Marine Corps League Ladies Auxiliary, Massena Rotary Club, IBEW Local 2032, Italian-American Club, Paul Post Realty, Hoot Owl Enterprises, Laughing Hyena, JC Towers, Massena Hospital/Rochester Regional Health, Community Bank, Twin Rivers Federal Credit Union, NBT Bank, SeaComm Federal Credit Union, Vanguard, Moser
