Description

Sacred Heart operates a food pantry and clothes closet, where we distribute essential items to over 400 families a day. We rely on donations to keep these programs going and you can help! A donation drive is an organized effort to collect and donate some of our most needed items. 

What's Needed To Complete

To start a drive check out our https://sacredheartcs.org/donate-stuff/" target="_blank" rel="noopenerwebsite and register today! The Sacred Heart Community Engagement Coordinator would love to help you organize your drive. The items we are looking for the most change depending on the season, but our most top needed items are pop-top canned protein and food items, hygiene items (toothpaste, deodorant, shampoo, etc.), powder baby formula, shelf-stable milk, and toilet paper. 

Whose Help Is Required

Class, scout troop, or other groups of like-minded kids. (Assuming an adult is also involved in the facilitation, but activity is geared toward group involvement and can be primarily executed by the children involved.)

Special Requirements
