Cornucopia Food Drive – October 30 through November 13
Soaring food costs are affecting our community. You can help by donating food pantry items to be distributed at Dinner Bell on November 19 and November 26 (the Saturdays before and after Thanksgiving). Collection bins are in the atrium.
Suggested items include canned yams & veggies, boxed stuffing mix, instant mashed potatoes, gravy, quick bread/roll mix, canned soups, instant coffee, pie crust mix, boxed/bagged rice, cranberry sauce, and cereals.
Blood Drive – Monday, November 7 from 10:30 am to 3:30 pm
The American Red Cross is back at FCCO on Monday, November 7th from 1030 am-3:30 pm and we need YOUR help to fill the schedule. We are critically low on appointments! The blood collected is used to respond to patient emergencies, including accident and burn victims, heart surgery and organ transplant patients, and those receiving treatment for leukemia, cancer, or sickle cell disease. The goal for this drive is 29 units of blood, which will touch 87 patients in need. All blood types are needed!
