Help us collect 500 food items for the Grimes and DMARC Area Food Pantries! The October Compassion project focuses on hunger in Grimes and surrounding areas. Last Sunday the kids’ learned about hunger and what we at St. Peter can do to help those in need. We’ve decided to try to collect 500 food items in recognition of the 500th Anniversary of the Reformation. Please consider donating non-perishable food items, we will be collecting the food through Sunday, October 29. (Examples: chili beans, tomato soup, large cans of soup, crackers, toilet paper, toothpaste, spaghetti sauce, 100% juice etc.)

In order to make this food drive more exciting, we will have a contest to see which college/college team’s fans provide the most items. When you bring in your donation, simply mark your bag with your favorite team. (We will have labels available for several teams/colleges at the collection table.)
