Our Lady of the Rosary
We host 2 food drives a year to benefit a community of folks struggling to put food on their table every week near Our Lady of the Rosary parish in Louisburg, NC. Louisburg is a rural community where approximately 24% of the population live below the poverty line.
The Our Lady of the Rosary food pantry is the only food pantry in this area and serves over 100 families each day it is open.
It is quite a privilege to have the resources to continue to help this community each year, thank you for all of your past support!
