Blessed Sacrament

Welcome to the 30th Annual

Blessed Sacrament Greg Gannon Canned Food Drive!

Food Drive is Saturday, December 2nd,  rain or shine!

The week of November 27th, teams will deliver empty grocery bags to doorsteps in our parish neighborhoods. On Saturday, December 2nd, teams will gather at Blessed Sacrament Church at 8:30 a.m. for a prayer service and refreshments, before heading out to pick up bags filled with cans in their territories.

We need territory leaders, territory helpers, and parish center collection site volunteers. Registration opens on November 1st.  If you have any questions, please contact Meredith Ficca at or (301) 674-1043.

DRIVE SUPPLIES: Territory Leaders will pick up your supplies (including bags, flyers, t-shirts, and thank you door hangers) over Thanksgiving weekend in the parish center before and after masses.

DISTRIBUTE BAGS: Distribute the bags with flyer stapled to them by Thursday, November 30th to all houses in your territory.  Please follow the map you were given and do not cross your outside boundary street.  

DRIVE DAY: December 2nd

  • 8:30 a.m.: Meet in the Parish Center off of the black top for coffee and doughnuts,  then into the Church for a quick send off prayer service
  • Then, teams head out into territories to collect those bags, full of cans!
  • Finally, count your cans, and bring collected bags to the GEICO Friendship Heights parking lot where we will have representatives from food pantries ready to take your food!
