St. Francis of Assisi Group
Our parish has been a generous supporter of the CPO Food Drives for many years. Each Spring and Fall hundreds of parishioners participate in these drives through donations of food, money and time.
The September drive will be somewhat different due to the ongoing pandemic. Each family making a donation of food will need to provide its own shopping bag. A list of the desired items can be found in the online version of the St. Francis weekly bulletin. Those wishing to avoid trips to the grocery store are welcome to make a cash donation instead. Please make your check out to “CPO Food Drive”.
Since we have not returned to a full schedule of Masses yet, we will be accepting the bags in a slightly different timeframe than before. We will have volunteers staffing the CPO truck on Sunday, Sept. 20 and Sunday, Sept. 27 from 9am to 1pm and from 3pm-5:30pm.
If you are able to volunteer for one of the time slots, please be aware that masks and social distancing will still be required. We are limiting those sorting the bags inside the CPO truck to those living in the same domicile in order to reduce possible exposure to the coronavirus.
The need for the CPO Food Drive has never been greater. Please be as generous as possible.
Yours in peace,
St. Francis of Assisi LGBTQ+ Ministry
