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. The boxes will be given to the St. Vincent de Paul Bank Street location, and some items will go to support Sr. Therese Delgenio at Our Daily Bread Soup Kitchen.

WHAT ARE WE COLLECTING? This year we are mixing things up a bit. Each HOMEROOM will be challenged to bring in ONE PARTICULAR ITEM from the list of St. Vincent de Paul's most-needed list. These will be food and personal care items that our neighbors in need will most benefit from receiving.

HR GOALS: Since the prices of the items we are collecting differ and since the number of students in each homeroom varies. Click the image below for your HR's goal.

RANDOM ITEMS: Since there are other food and personal care items that people can use and that you might be willing to donate, we are happy to accept them in Campus Ministry. Simply write your HR number on each item you bring in! Thank you.

What is the need?

Also partnering with us this on our Food + Drive this year is the Children's Home of Cincinnati Autism Services, through our BeYOUtiful project. Together we serve at Greenacres and Gorman Farm, we will join them for their Prom in May and the Autism Speaks Walk, and we will be assisting in their Shantytown event.
