Thursday, November 08, 2012 7:05:00 PM

In the spirit of Stritch's Franciscan values, students, faculty, and staff are encouraged to participate in Campus Ministry’s Thanksgiving Food Drive, beginning Nov. 8. Donations will benefit the House of Peace, a Capuchin Franciscan Ministry.

The process is simple, but the effects will be widespread and substantial.

  1. Pick up an empty donation box at one of four locations; the St. Francis of Assisi Chapel, the U.C. (near Schroeder Auditorium), the Campus Ministry Center, or the Joan Steele Stein Center for Communication Studies and Fine Arts. Boxes will be available after
    3 p.m. on Nov. 8.

  2. Fill the box with nonperishable food items to create a House of Peace Holiday Basket.

  3. Return filled boxes to any of the previously mentioned locations.

Financial donations are also appreciated and may be turned in directly to Jon Metz or Father Jim.

All members of the Stritch community are invited to attend the Ecumenical Thanksgiving Service on Nov. 15 at 12:25 p.m. in the St. Francis of Assisi Chapel. Representatives from the House of Peace will be present to pick up donations at this time, however, the food drive will continue after Nov. 15.

After the donation period, members of men’s baseball team will collect the filled boxes and purchase additional food items.
