General message for your emails:
Thank you for your generous donations to the parish food drives being sponsored by the St. Bridget Knights of Columbus. The next parish food drive is for St. Peter Catholic Church’s Food Pantry, which helps feed the homeless and the needy in the inner city. The food drive will take place on Saturday, September 26th from 8:45 am to Noon on the parish parking lot. Food items and gift cards will be collected. Please help fill their food pantry in this time of need! Visit our parish website and see the parish emails that suggest the food items to donate. Thank you again for your wonderful generosity!
Thanks for helping push the word out about the food drive! Let’s make this the biggest food drive yet!
And, please consider helping during the food drive. Let’s see some new Brothers for this food drive. It is fine to have more brothers than needed – the fellowship is good and the visibility to our parishioners is wonderful! Let me know how you want to plug in on the volunteer chart.
Bless you, Brothers!
