For Students 

The Redeemer is continuing with the project started last year to provide weekend food for Newton high school and middle school students.   

We have expanded the number of schools getting food and will provide grocery bags for parishioners to purchase specific food items for the students.  The Youth Groups have stapled a list of the foods in the sizes needed (and where to find them most economically) on each bag.  Please feel free to buy one item, several of one item, one of everything on the list (which would fill a bag for about $18) or any combination that appeals to you.  This might be a wonderful opportunity for children who are younger than members of the Youth Groups to help shop for the items and talk about what they eat on the weekends.

A huge thank you to all of you who have already supported this effort in so many ways.  Your generosity has been a blessing beyond expectation.  Food collection, or cash donations for someone else to shop on your behalf, will continue through this coming year. This is Redeemer’s project and it will take all of us to make it work.

If you have suggestions, comments or questions, please be in touch with the Redeemer office: or 617-566-7679.
