Brothers Keeper

Brothers Keeper  is an outreach ministry of Saint Charles that provides assistance to the community at large. Bags of groceries are given out on a weekly basis. Volunteers sort and sell donated clothes and household items in the store located at 4353 Edgewater Drive right next to Pizza Hut in the Subway Plaza.

This outreach ministry has been of great assistance to those less fortunate and, with your help, it will continue to do so. Brothers Keeper is in need of more volunteers to assist in sorting, stacking and pricing items and checking out at the register. If you are interested and are able to give just an hour or two a week, please call the parish office 407-293-9556. The pantry shelves are once again low and need to be restocked; your donations of non-perishable foods and personal hygiene items will be greatly appreciated.

Please continue to be generous by donating non-perishable foods and toiletry items to the Food Pantry at Brothers Keeper. Your generosity is greatly appreciated, as we distribute over 9,500 bags of groceries to needy families each year.  Additionally, we provide food to over 400 homeless individuals annually.
