The First Sunday Food Drive gathers food and monetary donations for the social justice ministries at St. Basil’s. This includes: St. Vincent de Paul, Out of the Cold, and The Miller Group.
Inspired by the voice of the founder, John Ford, the ministry also gives a voice to the needs of the local community and good work of parishioners as they respond to those needs. This is done by capturing and sharing stories (as they are appropriate) and conveying those to the parish community.
On the first Sunday of each month, two volunteers will stand in the vestibule and collect food and donations. There are also two volunteers who pick up the donations and deliver the non-parishables to the food bank on the following Monday.
A willingness to be here on a Sunday for certain Mass times to collect donations.
