St. Patrick's Church
Welcome to the 5th Annual
St. Patrick's Greg Gannon Canned Food Drive!
Food Drive is Saturday, November 11th, rain or shine!
The week of November 5th, teams will deliver empty grocery bags to doorsteps in our parish neighborhoods. On Saturday, November 11th, teams will gather at St. Patrick's 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.
SIGN UP HERE: We need territory leaders, territory helpers, and parish center collection site volunteers. Click jobs for details. Registration opens on October 8th!
DRIVE SUPPLIES: Territory Leaders will pick up your supplies (including bags, flyers, t-shirts, and thank you door hangers) on: Thursday, November 2nd from 5:30-7:00pm, and Friday, November 3rd from 3:30-5:00pm.
DISTRIBUTE BAGS: Distribute the bags with flyer stapled to them by Wednesday, November 8th to all houses in your territory. Please follow the map you were given and be mindful of streets where territories border each other and only deliver to one side of the street.
DRIVE DAY: Saturday, November 11th
8:30 a.m.: Meet in the Church for a send off prayer service, followed by coffee and doughnuts in the parish center.
Then, teams head out into territories to collect those bags, full of cans!
Finally, count your cans, and bring collected bags to the St. Patrick's parking lot where we will have representatives from food pantries ready to take your food!
This year's collection will be used to support St. Patrick's Holiday Giving Thanksgiving baskets and local food pantries.
