An opportunity to serve next Saturday
A community service opportunity:
Our sister parish in Granite City, Holy Family Church, has been provided the opportunity to host a
Farmers-to-Families food box giveaway next Saturday, April 24
. We welcome the opportunity to help distribute food to our community during a time when some are still dealing with food insecurities.
The event will be hosted at the
Granite City High School parking lot
starting at 9:00 a.m. There are between 1,200 and 1,700 boxes per truck load to be unloaded and distributed as drive-thru for contactless exchange.
We need volunteers to arrive at 8:30 a.m.
so the operation can be explained. Volunteers then simply load boxes into the cars as they drive through. The event runs until all boxes are gone. It’s is expected that the event will go from 9:00am to about 11:30am.
Please share this information on to others who may want to volunteer. But more importantly pass this on to anyone who may be in need so they can come get some food.
If you have any questions, please contact Ben Martin at
or the Holy Family Parish Office at 618-877-7158.
