FOOD DRIVE — PLEASE HELP US MAKE A DIFFERENCE FOR LOCAL FAMILIES IN NEED!
Your children can learn the gifts of compassion and generosity and help us help those less fortunate by donating to our annual food drive. Working together as one unit, we will be given a certain number of items that need to be brought in each week. If we reach that school-wide goal, EVERYONE enjoys a Spirit Day on the next school day! (Preschool will receive a special treat).
- Please see the list of suggested food items below
- No time to shop? Consider a memorial basket donation and we’ll shop for you!
- The final count will be held on Thursday, November 17th.
“Fill A Bucket” for others in the Spirit of Jesus!
Please give what you can. Once grocery bag of food can provide as many as 11 meals. Every single donation helps, and together we hope our combined donations will make a real difference for those in need. The food pantry is asking for nutritious canned and dry goods. Please do not send in expired itmes or dented cans. Please be reminded that some of the clients are diabetic and need sugar-free food.
Here are some suggestions:
fruit canned in juice/water
(e.g. Beefaroni & Spaghettios)
pasta & sauce
granola & breakfast bars
Donations will be collected each morning in the classroom. On Thursday, we will announce our food count total and if the school has reached its weekly goal, EVERYONE receives a spirit day on that Friday!! Preschool will receive a special treat. There will also be other “spirit” thank you opportunities throughout the collection. If you would like to give cash, please make your check out to HFHN FOOD DRIVE and these monies will be converted into Food Gift Cards: or you can puchase the cards yourself (you can order Stop & Shop cards through HFHN and earn FRA credit!!) and donate them.
HOLY FAMILY HOLY NAME School… a family you can count on!
