COMING DECEMBER 2017
Please join us as we provide assistance to our neighbors in need but supporting our 2018 Food Drive for St. Vincent de Paul. Each homeroom is challenged to fill boxes with essential items, and families are encouraged to help by filling a box. The boxes will be given to the St. Vincent de Paul Bank Street location, the St. Vincent de Paul Conference at Sts Peter and Paul in Reading, and some will go to support Sr. Therese Delgenio at Our Daily Bread Soup Kitchen.
Goals and incentives will be announced at the Kickoff in January 2018.
What is the need?
- Cincinnati ranked #6 in child poverty as of 2015.
- At least 70% of children in Cincinnati live in families that do not earn enough to be self-sufficient. In Hamilton County, that number is 50%.
- 85% of families with children in poverty in Cincinnati were headed by single females as of 2015.

Also partnering with us this on our Food Drive this year is the Children's Home of Cincinnati - School for Autism. We are working on a number of service activities together - combined service at Gorman Farm and Greenacres, helping with their Prom in May, joining them for their Autism Speaks Walk, and assisting in their Shantytown event.
