SUMMER 2014 ANNOUNCEMENT!
It is with great excitement that we announce that the John Donnelly Memorial Garden received a special grant from the Catholic Campaign for Human Development through the Diocese of Syracuse! The money from this grant will be used to help us expand our garden project that we started last year that aims to provide our pantry with fresh produce! We can’t wait to get working. Let’s hope and pray for another fruitful summer! Below are the new details!
