With churches closed and unemployment increasing, St. Christine’s Food Bank in Detroit is in great need of non-perishable food donations. To help stock the food bank, St. Cyril’s is sponsoring a non-perishable food drive at the Activity Center this Monday, May 18, from 10:00AM – 12:00 NOON. The Food Drive will take place come rain or shine.
The foods that are most needed are:
canned meats or tuna, cereal, salad dressings, and taco or pizza making kits but donations of any canned or packaged foods (no glass jars, please!) will be greatly appreciated.
Please bring your donation in a sturdy cardboard box or a bag ready to be transported.
Because of current restrictions, this will be a drop-off food collection. What does that mean? It will be a lot like the drop off for Catechism. You will enter the Activity Center parking lot from 18 Mile Road and drive to the back of the building.
Please have your donations in your trunk (preferably) or back seat. Volunteers will direct you to either:
- place your donation in the back of the delivery truck while practicing social distancing, OR
- place your donations on a designated table and the volunteers will put them in the delivery truck for you, OR
- if you can’t lift the donations out of your car, a volunteer will remove them from your trunk (preferably) or your back seat while practicing social distancing and the volunteer will place your donations in the delivery truck.
You will then continue around the Activity Center and exit to 18 Mile Road. To make the drop-off run smoothly and quickly, there will not be access to the Activity Center from the main parking lot.
Thank you for your consideration and for helping your neighbors who are in need!
