THANKSGIVING FOOD DRIVE

THANKSGIVING FOOD DRIVE

Thank you for your overwhelming support and generosity last year. We were able to feed over 50 families and the need is just as great this year. We hope we can count on your support once again. This has proven to be a strong parish tradition and we couldn’t do it without you! We will collect non-perishables at all Masses October 20 – November 18. There will be a box placed in the OLSH Gathering Space for your donations. If you would like to make a monetary donation, place in an envelope marked “OLSH FOOD DRIVE” and drop it in the collection basket (at either parish). Checks should be made payable to OLSH Church and list “Food Drive” in the memo section. The monetary donations will be used to buy the perishable items that will be included in the
meals. We are in need of turkeys as well, if you would like to contribute to this need, please call Lisa Schoenberger (535-9841) or email Lisa.Schoenberger@bizcinci.rr.com or Diane Brown (563-7717). If you attend the Reading Fire Department’s Annual Turkey Raffle (Nov. 16/17) and win more turkeys than your family needs, consider donating for this mission. We just need your winning ticket on Sunday, Nov. 18th.

Boxed Instant Potatoes, Boxed Stuffing

expiration dates on products if you’re donating from
your own cupboard…thanks
