The Freeport Lions and the tri-parish cluster of Sacred Heart Parish-Freeport, Immaculate Conception Parish-New Munich, and St. Rose of Lima Parish-St. Rosa are hosting a "Food For Kidz" project on Saturday, April 12 at the Freeport Community Center in Freeport. Last year we had 290 volunteers and donations totaling $11,515 from our tri-parish cluster and other area churches, local businesses, members of local service organizations or clubs like 4-H and NHS, and students from area schools. That came to approximately 76,767 meals.
This year again we are asking for volunteers to package food on two shifts with 150 people per shift.
- First Shift: 11:00am - 1:00pm
- Second Shift: 1:00pm - 3:00pm
We hope to raise $12,000 which would feed about 88,000 children. Donations can be sent to the Sacred Heart Parish office at PO Box 155, Freeport, MN and volunteers can call the parish office at 320-836-2143 to sign up for the shift of your choice. Please keep this date and project in mind as you make your plans for Lent and look for ways to share our gifts with others in need. Everyone (Kids and Adults) is welcome.
