Have a Heart Food Drive: Feb. 13 & 14

With the pandemic’s onset nearly a year ago, the need for donated food within our own community has increased significantly. That’s why we’re asking SS. Isidore and Maria Parish members to take part in the “Have a Heart” food drive on Valentine’s Day weekend, Sat., Feb. 13 and Sun., Feb. 14.

We seek donations of non-perishable food items and grocery store gift cards after each Mass at St. Paul Church that weekend. All that is collected will be distributed to anyone in need locally through the St. Vincent de Paul Society .
All foods are needed. Here is a list of suggested donation items:

Non-perishable food:

  • Pancake mix
  • Pancake syrup
  • Peanut butter
  • Jelly
  • Canned fruit/vegetables
  • Snacks/crackers
  • Canned tuna
  • Cereal (hot or cold)
  • Coffee

Household items:

  • Paper towels
  • Laundry detergent
  • Dish soap
  • Toilet paper
  • Tissues

In order to maintain appropriate physical distancing and traffic flow:

  • Drive to the front of St. Paul Church
  • Following the instruction of the volunteer directing traffic, please proceed to the collection vehicle.
  • Place your donation in the collection vehicle*.
  • Please wear a mask.
  • Please exit via Main Street, or through the back parking lot.
  • Those in attendance at Mass may leave donations with the ushers.

Please note that this is a collection event only. Anyone in need of food or other items through the St. Vincent de Paul Society may contact the parish office at 860-633-9149, or contact@isidoreandmaria.org.
