Redeemer Lutheran Church

Redeemer Community Food Drive

There are multiple ways to join your church family to help with this food drive!  An excellent opportunity for us to reach out to our community and show the love of Christ. 

And Lord-willing, He will open doors for us to share the love and hope of Jesus with any unbelievers we come across in the follow-up process.

How will we do this?  

Very similar to our church-event postcard-efforts, you are able to pick up a map of a neighborhood and a stack of grocery bags to cover that area on the map.  Each bag will be left on a doorstep.  Directions for the Food Drive are attached to the bag.  Bags will be distributed between Oct 9-10, preferably before 7pm.

The following weekend, Oct 16-18, volunteers will walk the maps, collecting bags left on doorsteps.  A truck will follow alongside, as a holding place for the filled bags. Trucks will empty their beds in our gym, then return for more collections.

Monday morning, Oct 19, all the bags will be sorted and transported to the Fondy Food Pantry.

 

To help the Drive run smoothly and to get any questions answered, please attend the 30-minute instructional meeting to be held MONDAY, OCTOBER 5, 7:30pm.
