WSOY Community Food Drive

First Christian Church partners each fall with the WSOY Community Food Drive to gather non-perishable food for The Salvation Army, Catholic Charities, and other community food pantries. This is a way we meet an immediate need and show love to our community.

We will pass out grocery bags the weekend of September 15/16, 2018 in which we asked every household to return your grocery bag full of non-perishable food donations the weekend of September 22/23, 2018. All you have to do is drop it off next to your car, and we’ll pick it up for you. How easy is that?!

Then on Friday, October 5, 2018, you can help with the food drive by taking phone pledges throughout the day.

You are also invited to join us Saturday, October 6, 2018, from 9-11am as we unload and sort the donated food at Catholic Charities.

Questions? Contact BJ at bleonard@firstdecatur.org or 217.875.3350.

Get involved!

There are many ways to serve, and we encourage you to get involved.
