The 2018 Great Holiday Food Drive

The cost of putting food on the table has increased. Seasonal jobs are over and as a result, Community Care of St. Catharines & Thorold is experiencing an increased need for their services. 

Families in need can’t get through the holidays without your support and we need your help to make the 14th Annual Great Holiday Food Drive a success! On Friday December 14th from 5:30am to 6pm, we’re trying to  STUFF A BUS with non-perishable items and cash donations to assist the people in our community who need a little help around the holidays.

THIS YEAR - WE’RE PARKING THE BUS AT: Market Square in Downtown St. Catharines PLUS we'll be collecting at Zehrs Markets at the Pen Centre. 

If you can’t make it out but still want to make a donation, you can text GIVE to 20222 to make a $10 or $25 donation directly to Community Care St. Catharines and Thorold - the need goes on… Monetary donations are income tax receipt eligible and allows Community Care to stretch dollars 5 - 1.
