St. Stephen’s Holiday Food & Fund Drive for VEAP

December 3, 10 & 17

Join us this holiday season in supporting VEAP through a Food & Fund drive. There are several ways that YOU and your family can participate in the drive –

  • Donate Food. Print this Most Wanted Food Items List and hit the grocery store! Then, simply bring your food donations back to church and we will do the rest!
  • Donate Funds. Cash donations are also greatly appreciated. For every $1 you donate, VEAP can provide 5 pounds of food to your neighbors in need. Pick up an envelop and information on donating from the VEAP table on Sundays at church.
