St. Francis often conducts collections of items needed by various organizations we support.
Below you will find information on the current opportunity to help others in need.
Thanksgiving Food Drive
The youth attending after school and other programs run by Second Story (formerly Alternative House) come from needy families without adequate food. Therefore, Second Story has asked for help in ensuring that the youth in their programs and their families are able to enjoy a Thanksgiving meal.
If you would like to donate a Thanksgiving food basket, each basket should contain enough food to feed six people and include the following items:
- Grocery gift card for $20 from Safeway, Giant, or Shoppers to purchase a turkey or other meat and milk.
- Powdered gravy mix or jarred/canned gravy
- Canned cranberry sauce
- Four cans of vegetables (two types)
- Canned sweet potatoes/yams or mashed potato mix
- Stuffing mix
- Three cans of fruit
- Box of dessert mix
Please place your bags/boxes of nonperishable food in the bins under the poster across from Millen Hall. Grocery gift cards should be put in an envelope marked "Food Drive" and put in the offering plate or sent/given to Lynn Fallon in the church office. The last day of the drive will be Sunday, November 12. If you have any questions, please contact Ginger Roll at firstname.lastname@example.org
