An Opportunity to Love Your Neighbor!
Thom's car packed with tomato sauce (above)
and pasta (below) for Pastathon last year.
For the last four years, Thom Babcock (an early service attendee) and his granddaughter Allyssa
have sought donations for Caterina's Club, which feeds more than 3500
motel children a hot meal every weekday in more than 19 cities
throughout Southern California. Last year Thom and Allyssa raised $300
in cash and checks in addition to almost 2700 pounds (that's almost a
ton and a half!) of pasta and sauce and were amazed at the generosity of
all those who helped them surpass their goal of 2500 pounds. Keep in
mind that each pound of pasta feeds 7 kids!!! This year their goal is
3,000 pounds of pasta and sauce. Anything you would like to contribute would
be greatly appreciated. Pasta and sauce are their main objective but
checks and cash can be used to purchase those items as the pasta and
sauce is purchased wholesale. Here is how much buying power there is in
$10 = 17 pounds
$20 = 34 pounds
$50 = 85 pounds
$100 = 90 pounds of spaghetti and 80 pounds of sauce
Total cash needed to reach the 3,000 pound goal is $1800. Any amount will help them towards their goal.
If you have items that need to be picked up call
Let's help Thom and Alyssa reach their personal goal. Make checks
payable to Thom Babcock with Caterina's Club in the memo. Thom will provide you with a receipt for your taxes.
