New Hope Ministries Thanksgiving Blessings Drive now thru November 7th

Throughout the year Saint Katharine Drexel supports the food distribution program of New Hope Ministries. We have a collection box located by the Saint Francis Relief in the narthex where you may be familiar with dropping off non-perishable goods already.

A special drive is underway to support the Thanksgiving Blessing food drive. This drive enables others to have a blessed Thanksgiving meal they may not otherwise have been able to afford.

If you are able to assist in this program this year, please pick up a manna bag on your way out of Mass and fill it with the trimmings for a delicious meal.

Please return the manna bags by the week of November 7th.

Food distribution will happen through New Hope Ministries the week of the 15th.

The following non-perishable food items are requested for the Thanksgiving Blessings drive:

  • Stuffing Mix
  • Potato Mix
  • Gravy
  • Canned Veggies
  • Canned Cranberry Sauce

Turkeys are also needed…but are not a good idea to put in a Manna Bag!!!!! New Hope is asking for these to be delivered to one of their offices. Below are the addresses for New Hope Ministries Mechanicsburg and Enola.
