Nov 19, 2006Our Council, in cooperation with the Saint Vincent DePaul Society of St. Leo’s Parish, will be collecting food and/or cash to provide underprivileged families with a food basket for Thanksgiving. The council donates a turkey and a gift certificate for purchase of perishables to go with the baskets. It has been a tradition in our Council that Council members or groupings of members adopt a family and purchase a basket with the suggested items on our adopt–a-family shopping list.
Please try to participate in this worthwhile program. If you can’t provide basket cash donations would be helpful in purchasing items that are not available in the SVDP larder. We asked that your baskets be brought to Providence Hall on Saturday the 18th of November.
The suggested food list which is designed to provide a weeks supply of staples for a family of 4, 2 parents and 2 children, is posted on our Website and is also available in Providence Hall. Depending on your spending habits the average cost of providing all the items on the food list will cost about $75. See linked list below.
Contact Al or Greg for donating baskets; assembling baskets and delivery.
Assembly is on Saturday, November 18th at 10:00 AM
Delivery to the recipients of the baskets will be on Sunday, November 19th starting at 10:00 AM.
