ALBANY, GA (WALB) -

"Food For A Thousand" and "Building On A Sure Foundation" are two important projects for St. Patrick's Episcopal Church and Saturday they will be putting on an event that will help support both causes.

Members say its something that will bring people together whether they belong to St. Patrick's or not, they feel its about making those connections.

Connections such as helping families who don't have access healthy food and that's where "Food For A Thousand" comes in. Project leaders have partnered with "Neighbors In need" and "The Lord's Pantry" to give 1,000 lbs of food to local kitchens.

St. Patrick's member, Juby Phillips, feels its a huge effort that makes a great impact.  She says much of their success comes from their growing number of supporters. Phillips says that's why they are looking to expand their worship center from donations collected by "Building On A Sure Foundation."
 
 
"We have one building and every Sunday we are very full and we need more space so we're gonna have that and we'll have room for different activities in addition to the garden. It lets the community at large also know what we're doing and be here with us to celebrate what is going on at St. Patrick's"

Construction on that new space just started this week and they hope for its completion later on this year.

Lap A Leprechaun takes place March 29th at St. Patrick's Episcopal Church.
