Thanksgiving Food Drive
The Dublin Food Pantry is now preparing for its annual Thanksgiving Food Collection Drive. This month the pantry will move into its own home at 6608 Dublin Center Drive. The service days will eventually expand to 5 days per week. The need is great in Dublin, serving 80-100 families each open day. This Thanksgiving, the pantry hopes to provide Thanksgiving meals for at least 450-500 families during the month of November. Many churches throughout Dublin will be providing food items. Once again, the Social Action Committee is spearheading this project with the support of the parishioners of St. Brigid. This year we offer two options for giving.
Option One: Provide an entire Thanksgiving dinner
Parishioners can donate the ingredients for an entire Thanksgiving meal (no cooking is necessary) for a family in need. Parishioners would provide everything from the list below in boxes or bags to be dropped off at the Dublin Food Pantry at 6608 Dublin Center Drive on Saturday October 28 10-12 or Monday October 30 5-7.
The following items are to be included in this option – $25 gift card from a local grocery store, 2 cans of fruit, 2 cans of corn, 2 cans of green beans, 2 boxes of macaroni and cheese, 2 regular boxes (or one large box) potatoes, 2 boxes of stuffing, 2 cans or packets of gravy (no glass jars please) and 2 boxes of Jiffy cornbread.

Option Two: Provide boxed potatoes and gravy
Parishioners who prefer to donate on a smaller scale can provide boxed potatoes and boxed/canned gravy for inclusion in the remainder of the Thanksgiving meals provided to client families of the Food Pantry. Collection of the donations will be before and after Masses on October 28-29 in Hendricks Hall in the designated boxes.
