The Blessed Edmund Society of Tampa (B.E.S.T) is proud to have made over 4,500 peanut butter and jelly sandwiches this school year through our monthly ministry.
The sandwiches have benefited food insecure single moms and their children, neighbors struggling to overcome drug addiction, shut-in's that have difficulty accessing the basics, as well as other local residents experiencing homelessness.
Our Crusader community has focused on partnering with local non-profits that have struggled due to lack of volunteer support as a result of the COVID pandemic. B.E.S.T. also made significant contributions in the areas of ecological awareness, advocacy for people with cognitive disabilities, and after school tutoring to students dealing with low socioeconomic circumstances.
With the guidance of our Christian Brothers, the initiatives of our student population, and intercession of Blessed Edmund we feel empowered to bring about the greater good no matter the circumstances of the world!
