Our global Life Teen family has once again united to serve our communities! Parishes from all around the world are currently reporting their food drive totals and sending us pictures from their Give It Away Now – The Can It edition – Global Life Night and canned food drive.
Here is a look at what we have heard so far:
Total # of parishes reported: 78
Total # of food items: 101,941
Top 3 Parishes:
- St. Charles, Lima OH–14,978
- St. Anne, Youngsville LA–6,300
- St. Joseph, Cottleville, MO–6,000
As a Life Teen family, we are accomplishing great things together. Most parishes collected under 500 canned food items, but those 500 or so items go directly into communities to help those who really need it. With just the parishes who have reported in, together we have put food on the shelves of over 45 different ministries and over 20 St. Vincent de Paul chapters. Many of those ministries were in such desperate need that their pantries were literally bare. Like the fishes and the loaves, God provides – and He uses us to do so! Not only did we fill shelves with food, but many parishes also collected clothing and monetary donations for these organizations as well. What a blessing!
If you haven’t sent in your totals yet, please do so by emailing email@example.com. We want to know your parish name, city, state, how many items you collected and where the items were donated to.
