The Be Thankful Food Drive is beginning! 
We are collecting Saturday, October 16 through Sunday, November 21.

Yes, it's that time of year where we are so grateful for all that we have and this food drive allows us to help those who are less fortunate. 

Donations in Tempe will be given to Matthew's Crossing Food Pantry and to the Salvation Army. 

Please put only non perishable food items in the large bin in the Tempe narthex. The bin is marked indicating the drive.

All non perishable food items are welcome, but the biggest needs are the following items:

  • peanut butter
  • canned meat/tuna
  • canned vegetables
  • canned fruit
  • canned vienna sausage
  • apple sauce cups
  • cereal
  • macaroni and cheese (Easy Mac)
  • ramen noodles
  • pasta
  • soup

The food pantry also loves to get donations of frozen turkeys, but please bring in on Saturday, November 20 or Sunday, November 21 to the Tempe campus. We have very little freezer storage and will need to bring the turkeys directly to the food pantry.

Thank you so much for your generosity!
