2014-10-05: Thanksgiving Food Drive (Oct 5 - Nov 16)

Post date: Jan 25, 2015 9:17:27 PM

This Sunday, October 5, our Church School starts its annual Thanksgiving Food Drive to help SOS Community Services of Ypsilanti.

SOS-CS started in 1970 as a small, grassroots effort by local college students to serve their peers during times of crisis. Every year more than 5,000 people receive food, crisis help, and a place to call home because of SOS. For more than 40 years, SOS volunteers and staff have been a lifeline to tens of thousands of homeless families in our community.

Each Church School student should please donate one item based on their classroom as shown below:

Preschool: 1 can of Corn

K–1st Grade: 1 box of Potato Flakes

2nd–3rd Grade: 1 can of Green Beans

4th–5th Grade: 1 box/bag of Stuffing

6th–7th Grade: 1 can of Cranberry Sauce

8th–9th Grade: 1 can of Mixed Fruit

10th–12th Grade: 1 small box/bag of Rice.

For reference, a collection box with a sample food item is in each classroom.

All donated food items are due no later than the Sunday before Thanksgiving, November 16, 2014.
