Saturday Afternoon Meal Outreach Program: Every three weeks on Saturday afternoons at 4:30 PM, St. Margaret’s volunteers provide a simple afternoon meal to approximately 50-60 homeless and working poor individuals and families in the Doheny Beach area. We welcome any volunteers who would like to prepare various parts of the meal: meat dish, rice, pasta, or potatoes, vegetable dish, and dessert as well as to help serve the meal at the distribution site. If you like to shop and would rather not cook, donations of food and water are always appreciated. To help, please contact Steve O’Leary:
firstname.lastname@example.org or 714-343-0031.
Padres Unidos: Through its program in 11 Orange County sites (San Juan Capistrano in particular), Padres Unidos works with 3.5 to 5 -year-old disadvantaged Hispanic children who are often less likely to receive this critical educational preparation. At weekly sessions, children are exposed to early literacy and motor skills and creativity through art activities while learning how to separate from parents, work in groups, and make decisions. Greater parent participation results in increased involvement in their children’s education and improved school readiness. For more information, please contact Sam Corliss at email@example.com or 949-212-1823.
Family assistance ministries: Family Assistance Ministries (FAM) is a faith-based charitable non-profit organization assisting those in need in Southern Orange County with resources for food, shelter,

Head Start: The organization of the Christmas Adopt-a-Family effort is an annual gift-giving of Christmas items for Head Start families. The names of these families are supplied by the San Juan Capistrano Head Start Organization. St. Margaret’s Church’s parishioners and the school’s preschool and lower and middle levels traditionally provide toys, clothing, and gift cards to grocery stores for these families.
