Supporting Refugee Families

Rice and Oil Donations


Thank you to those who have donated to our July outreach project! This month, we are collecting rice and cooking oil donations for distribution to refugee familiesy. For over 10 years Holy Cross has provided generous donations of over 16,000 pounds of rice and 800 gallons of cooking oil to RefugeeNet. The countries in Asia and Africa from which the refugees come, mainly Myanmar, the Sudan and the Congo, all depend on rice and cooking oil for their daily diet.


In-kind donations of rice and oil are gratefully accepted. Please bring them to church any Sunday in July. You may also make a financial donation, via:

  • Check: made out to Holy Cross with “rice and oil” on the memo line. Please mail your check to the church: 2647 Gateway Rd, Ste 105 #290, Carlsbad, CA 92009. Or bring it with you on Sunday and place it in the collection plate just inside the sanctuary door.
  • Zelle: Send to: holycross@holycrosscarlsbad.org. Please note “rice and oil” on the memo line.
  • Faithstreet: Select “RefugeeNet Outreach” from the dropdown menu.

Once again, a very generous anonymous donor will provide a $1,000 matching donation!


If you have questions, please contact ministry leader Mike Collier. Thank you for your generous support of this important outreach ministry.
