Thank you, St. Elia parish family, for your donations of 157 pounds of food this Advent season to feed the needy in our area!

The St. Elia Advent Food Drive, a ministry of our parish service group, the Workers of St. Elizabeth, concluded on Sunday, Dec. 22. All food items were delivered on Dec. 23 to the Akron-Canton Regional Foodbank. As many as 180,000 people in Northeast Ohio rely on the Foodbank for emergency food assistance each year through local food pantries, hot meal sites and shelters with emergency food programs.

According to the Foodbank, the donations received from St. Elia will provide 131 meals to needy people in our area during this holiday season and beyond. Thank you for your generosity!
