Food Drive - January 21-22
St. Bonaventure Justice & Peace Ministry is sponsoring a Food Drive this weekend to assist the homeless in our community. Because the homeless lack access to kitchens for cooking meals, the Ministry especially seeks food donations that can readily be eaten out of a can, jar, or package. Items such as peanut butter, pop-top canned goods, granola bars, and meals-in-a-can are ideal and can be eaten with little preparation.
If you are unable to donate food items, a gift card to a restaurant or fast food establishment would be welcome. All donated food and gift cards will go to the St. Bonaventure HOPE Ofﬁce, who will give them to the needy.
Please drop off food items and gift cards at the church after the 5:00 p.m. Mass on Saturday, January 21 and any time on Sunday, January 22 from 7:00 a.m. to 6:00 p.m. Thank you for your support.
