Food drive success 8/28/2021


Thanks for coming out to help with the Food Drive this past Saturday.   Here are a couple of pics for another successful drive.  We collected a good amount of food and $380 in financial gifts.   

Brothers that were able to assist:  John Bruckner, John VanderSyde, GK Bruce Slough, Bob Fout, Augie Keller, Mike Martin, Matt Costello, Mike Kozak, Ron Paquette, and Doug Lynch.  Special thanks to Brother Dan Geary for his help throughout and the generous use of his Lil’ Red Trailer!  We had some good fellowship and some good interaction with our parishioners. 

Please note September 25th as the tentative date for the next Food Drive. 

We sent the following thank you message to our parishioners:

Dear Parishioners,

Thank you once again for your generous contributions of food and gift cards this past weekend!  You have helped restock the Food Pantry at the Sacred Heart Center!  Our trailer was filled to the brim with nutritious food, diapers, toiletries and more!  Also, $380 in gift cards were donated to the Sacred Heart Center. 

It is wonderful and heartening to see the generosity of so many parishioners who helped feed the hungry!  The Knights of Columbus thank the St. Bridget staff for helping to promote the food and items drive.  For your calendar, the next food drive will be on Saturday, September 25th for the Food Pantry at Commonwealth Catholic Charities. 

We also invite parishioners to donate school supplies that will be shared with school children through both Commonwealth Catholic Charities and Blackwell Schools.  Please keep an eye out for the details!  Again, our deepest thanks to all of you!
