CPO Food Drive Volunteers
Catholic Parish Outreach (CPO) is conducting a "Feed a Family" Food Drive at St. Catherine's on October 27th & 28th.
The students of St. Catherine of Siena School and their families will hand out Food Drive grocery bags after all the Masses on October 20th and 21st. However, we also need 2 or 3 volunteers to attend the CPO truck before and after Masses on October 27th and 28th for the donation collection. If you are willing to help with collections on this weekend, please sign up for the specific Mass you choose. PLEASE SIGN UP BY OCTOBER 21 SO THAT WE MIGHT KNOW IF WE HAVE SUFFICIENT HELP FOR THIS WEEKEND.
We are always short of help for the Sunday 12:30 PM Spanish Mass and the Sunday evening 5:30 PM Mass so if you are inclined to make a special effort to attend one of these Masses or come out for an extra trip to help with these Masses it would be very much appreciated.
Thank-you for the generosity of your time to help this outreach ministry that provides groceries to hundreds of families 6 days a week throughout the year. For information about CPO, visit www.cporaleigh.org
CPO Parish Drives – Volunteer Instruction Guide
October 27th and 28th: Collecting Donations and Grocery Bags
Volunteers are to arrive at the CPO truck at least 30 minutes prior to Mass time and begin receiving donations. Volunteers are to man the truck immediately after Mass until most parishioners have departed.
The bags are received and loaded into the back of the CPO truck located in the Church parking lot. As some bags are heavy, at least one volunteer should be physically capable of stepping up and into the truck and handling heavy bags.
Cash and Check donations are to be placed in the cash box mounted on the wall of the truck just inside the lift door. CPO will provide all check donors with a letter for tax purposes. Receipts are available in the back of the truck for anyone who requests one.
NOTES: The CPO truck keys are kept in the Church Servers Sacristy (Mary side) on the counter inside the door. Volunteers will find the keys there to unlock the back of the truck. The volunteers will pad lock the back of the truck and return the keys to the Servers Sacristy after Mass. The volunteers should also lock the truck when not attending the truck during the Mass.
