Last chance to donate to the Advent Food Drive!

This Sunday is your last chance this Nativity season to help feed the needy in our area by participating in the St. Elia Advent Food Drive, a ministry of our parish service group, the Workers of St. Elizabeth. This week, we are especially requesting canned beef stew and canned soup, but any food donations are welcome.

fooddrive_miniAll food items that have been collected throughout Advent will be delivered on Monday, Dec. 23, to the Akron-Canton Regional Foodbank. The Foodbank lists its “Super Six” most needed items as: boxed cereal, peanut butter, canned tuna, canned vegetables, canned beef stew and canned soup. Other food items welcome are canned meats, canned fruit, canned meals (such as stew and chili), condiments and dressings, and dried pasta, rice and beans.

Look for the donation bin located near the entrance of church. Thank you for doing your part to help those in need!
