October 31/ November 1 – Monthly Food Pantry Collection
We are back to our monthly food collection! Let’s Fill the Truck! The parish truck will be parked in the rectory parking lot by the entrance to the church next weekend at all Masses on October 31 and November 1. Before you head into church, drop your food donations in the back of the truck.
November 7/8 – Cereal Collection
The truck will be back outside the church for cereal donations! Our annual cereal collection looks different this year (doesn’t everything?), instead of filling the Faith Formation Office to the brim over the course of the month, we are going to fill the truck to the brim over the course of the weekend! So, bring your cereal boxes to Mass and place them in the truck. Our goal this year is 400 boxes of cereal. Thank you in advance for your help!
Ongoing through November
The Thanksgiving Program will be different this year. EFPN will not be collecting food. There will not be a cereal collection. The program coordinators are going to order a truck of food from the Food Bank of Eastern Michigan. This program will also be drive thru for 400 specially designated recipients. Many nonprofit agencies are submitting names for this program. The program will need $15,000 to cover the cost of the truck as well as gift certificates that will be given to recipients. Monetary donations are also welcome and may be placed in the collection basket and designated for the EFPN Thanksgiving collection. Donations can also be sent to EFPN, P.O. Box 2521, Midland, MI 48641-2521. Thank you to all of you who sent in monetary donations over the past few months because we did not have food collections.
