Food Drive with Island Harvest

Reverse Advent Calendar Food Drive


Dear Grace Families:

A friend of ours, Lorne Winner, sent this Reverse Advent Calendar to us.  She saw it online and hoped that Grace Church would incorporate it as an outreach project.   

With unemployment so high and food lines all over our country, we felt it was important for us to count our blessings and take up the challenge to fill a box for a family less fortunate than ours with the suggested items listed on the calendar.  We are hoping you will join us, and perhaps while you are working on your family box, you will pass the idea along to other family members, friends and neighbors.   Just imagine what we could accomplish if everyone joined in! 


Please be sure that none of your food items are open or expired.  Your box may be dropped off at Grace Church on Wednesday, December 23, between 8 AM and 2 PM to Mike Marcotrigiano.  Weather permitting, there will be a canopy and tables set up in the southwest corner of the parking lot where the no parking barricades are.  If we are fortunate enough to collect 500 lbs. of food, Island Harvest will make a pick-up from Grace; otherwise, we will drop our collection to the Island Harvest warehouse in Uniondale.  

As we prepare for Christmas, may this season of Advent be one of hope and thankfulness for you and your families!

Thank you,

Debi & Richie Csajko
