Document 3.3: Cans and Donations Gratefully Accepted

"He was so giving. By the way, do you have any canned foods that you don't need?" the priest asks, gesturing at a large pile of canned goods in the baptistry. "We need them here, especially meats." He sighs. "We go on about charity so much here that many of our parishoners are tired of hearing about it all the time. The appeals are certainly more frequent these days, so I can understand why they just filter them out."

He pauses, looking apologetic. "Then again, over the many years I've been in this parish, there have been a few people who have heeded the call of the apostles, going practically apoplectic in their efforts to raise a few pennies for charitable causes. They get written up occasionally in the local paper."
