Aid for Friends

Aid for Friends (AFF) provides free home cooked meals to the disabled, isolated homebound and elderly.  AFF is located in Northeast Philadelphia and provides meals to over 2,000 shut-ins throughout the five county area.    To assist in this effort meals are prepared in the Parish kitchen by volunteers.  Individual parishioners also make trays at home and deliver them to the freezer in the Church Children’s Mass Room.  Empty trays with instructions are available in the Children’s Mass Room.  Visitors bring the meals to their client/friends and visit for approximately one hour each week.  These visits frequently develop into lasting friendships.
