On Saturday, July 29, 2017, St. Francis Food Pantries and Shelters sponsored a July Festival at St. John's Church, near Penn Station in Manhattan.

Our guests for the day were local homeless folks or people simply in need of a helping hand. Volunteers set up the church hall like a market, and those who attended went through picking up items they needed – such as clothes, hygiene products, and groceries. Guests also helped themselves to plenty of delicious food that was available throughout the event.

Thank you to those who volunteered to help hundreds of people in need. We are sending a special kudos to Ingrid Gerber and June Tang-How, who coordinated this effort and hope to make it an annual event.
