Fall Food Drive results

Brenda Koch

If you happened to be in the SaddleBrooke One Clubhouse parking lot on November 11 and November 18, you would be amazed to see all the bags of food lined up behind the cars. The Resurrection Church of SaddleBrooke held its annual Fall Food Drive on these days.

Resurrection members hold a fall and spring Food Drive each year. These drives provide much needed food for IMPACT Catalina, Interfaith Community Services (ICS), Marana Food Bank and Gospel Rescue Mission. Food items collected and most needed by these agencies were breakfast cereal/granola bars, dry beans and rice, canned spaghetti sauce, canned fruit and vegetables, peanut butter, canned meats such as tuna, chicken, spaghetti noodles/elbow pasta, toilet paper and soap, chili, ravioli, canned meals, canned beans and soups, mac and cheese and small can openers.

On this drive, the members collected a truckload of food on both days; estimates of 120+ bags of food items were collected. In addition, donations amounting to $150+ dollars were also given. The food is taken to a collection point and sorted into larger boxes to split up among the four agencies and then delivered to the agencies on the following Monday. I can’t think of a better use of one’s time or dollars than to contribute to this worthy cause.

The church services of the Resurrection Church at SaddleBrooke All-Denominational Sunday Worship services, 9:00 a.m. and 10:30 a.m., is in the Vermilion Room of the SaddleBrooke One Clubhouse (October–May); 10:00 a.m. (May-September). All are welcome!
