Thanksgiving Food Drive 2016… Thank you!

donated food bagsOn Sunday, November 13, we wrapped up our annual Thanksgiving Food Drive with our Junior High Faith Formation, Senior High Youth Group, Confirmation Candidates and their families sorting, delivering and shelving the food donated to St. Andrew’s Food Cupboard. Our volunteers worked from 11:30 am to 3:30 pm at St. Andrew’s helping organizing the donations. Thank you to all who participated.

The hundreds of food items donated at St. Thomas More and Our Lady Queen of Peace created one of the largest food donations that St. Andrew’s has ever received!
