Rocco and Mary Abessinio became interested in helping Casa San Francisco, Catholic Charities’ emergency shelter and food pantry in Milton, one Sunday when they were attending St. Ann’s in Bethany Beach.

During Mass, there was a representative who “was soliciting food, not money, but food,” Rocco Abessinio recalled recently.
