We are hosting a Pop-Up Food Drive to help meet the most immediate needs of some of our partner ministries: LifeWise STL and Epworth Children & Family Services. Thank you for your continued generosity in supporting our partner agencies. All items donated will benefit food distribution at Epworth Children and Family Services (out of Normandy facility) and LifeWise STL.
Date: Saturday, June 27
Time: 10:00 am - 2:00 pm
Salem (Mid-County): In Front of the Sanctuary
1200 S. Lindbergh Blvd., St. Louis, MO 63131
The Connection (South-City): Haven Street Doors
6701 Virginia Ave., St. Louis, MO 63111
Drop-Off Details: To donate, place your donation in the trunk or back of pick up, drive up in front of the church and remain in your car. A volunteer with gloves and a mask will take your donations out of your vehicle to avoid any contact.
Please note we are asking you to participate only IF you are already going to the store, placing an online order or have items to share. We are not encouraging you to go out to make a special shopping trip!
To help protect our volunteers and Epworth & LifeWise STL guests, please donate non-expired, un-opened products and use proper hand washing and sanitation techniques before you drop them off. (No expired food, please!)
Here is a current list of most needed items:
Whole grain cereals
Macaroni & Cheese
Beef - Inside Plastic Tubing
