IMMACULATE CONCEPTION EVENTS & ANNOUNCEMENTS

Food Pantry

If you need food assistance, we would like to direct you to C-FC Area Food Shelf located at St. John’s Church 303 Hill St in Fountain City. The hours are 1st and 3rd Mondays 4:30-6:30pm and 2nd and 4th Wednesdays from 3:00-5:00pm.

We are also collecting food items and paper goods to assist them with feeding the hungry. List of items most needed is on the bulletin board and items can be dropped off in Hansen Hall.

Immaculate Conception PCCW Collection benefiting Project Milk

For the month of June, the PCCW will be collecting money for Project Milk. Milk cans will be set out by both entrances of the church for your donations.

Project Milk has a two-fold purpose: to provide milk for children at the orphanage and to raise awareness of dairy farmers in WI (all the dried milk comes from dairy farms). Sinc 1984 Project Milk has shipped close to 450 tons of dried milk to Peru thanks to generous donations from the LaCrosse Diocese. One 50-pound sack of powdered milk costs about $100 and will feed 72 children for one week.

All donations go straight to the purchase, preparation, and shipment of the powdered milk. Administrative costs are covered by the Diocesan Annual Appeal.

Checks can be made out to Project Milk.
