Reaching Out To The Community This Christmas

  • December 17, 2018 - 12:00 am

CLC is partnering with St. Vincent de Paul Food Bank to collect food for Christmas to help them meet the need in our community, one grocery bag of food at a time.

You can pick up grocery bags in the lobby on Sunday morning along with instructions for how to connect local businesses to this food drive. We believe that when we partner with the community, we can have a greater impact together.

Did you know that in 2017, St. Vincent de Paul provided food for over 700 Christmas dinner tables?

Our goal is to get 100 bags into 100 local business break rooms for employees to donate non-perishables. You simply pick up a food drive bag kit and follow the attached instructions. All collections should be done before December 16th.

Each Sunday, bring your collected bags to church and on Sunday, December 16th at 12:30pm, we’ll take them over to St. Vincent DePaul. We’ll get a short tour of the facility to show Mile 1 Kids how everything we brought will be stocked for the community.

Don’t miss this opportunity to reach out to those in need this Christmas!
