St. Philip's Church Supporting the NDG Food Depot's Annual Drive

Once again this year St. Philip's church is supporting the NDG Food Depot's annual food drive. It will take place on Saturday, November 29, 2014 from 09h30 to 13h00. This annual event goes door-to-door collecting food to be distributed to those in need.

We are proud to once again take a leading role by offering the Food Depot our space and a large number of volunteers from our church. All are welcome to help out with this important community event by volunteering in one of the following ways:

1. Pick-up teams. Pick-up non-perishable food items from households in NDG, Westmount and Montreal West. We need drivers with cars accompanied by two able-bodied volunteers to knock on doors and collect food and donations.

2. Traffic teams. Direct people to the correct entrance when they arrive with their bags of food.

3. Sorting teams. Sort food as it is brought to St. Philip’s. Items will then be packed into boxes for storage.

4. Storing teams. The Food Depot will be using part of our lower Hall to store food over the next several months. Volunteers are needed to fill boxes with food and stack them on pallets.

5.Feeding teams. All of this activity requires sustenance! Donations of snacks, refreshments, etc. and people to distribute it to the volunteers willbe gratefully appreciated.

If you wish to help with this important mission in our community, please contact Mark R.or the office or look for the sign-up sheet at the church.
