Each year, Holy Martyrs coordinates a Turkey Run food drive to help Cleveland’s Saint Augustine Parish and Hunger Center in its annual ministry to provide 20,000 Thanksgiving meals. In addition, Holy Martyrs Church provides turkey dinners to those in need in our parish and locally in Medina County. Our 2022 goal is to provide 300 meals for these two efforts; there are five areas where you can help.
This year we are colllecting frozen turkeys and hams for St Augustine and turkey breasts for our food pantry.
Please sign up below. More information, including deadlines and drop-off details, will be provided via email once you sign-up. For questions, email [email protected]
