Lent 40 Days Food Drive
During this season of Lent, as we think of our neighbors and reflect on our blessings, we are asking for your help in reaching our goal by gathering 40 lbs of food a day for the 40 days of the lent season, February 22 – April 8 resulting in each group gathering a total of 1,600 lbs.
Visits to St. Francis House Food Pantry doubled from November 2021 to February 2023, directly coinciding to the disruption in SNAP benefits. The need in our community is greater than ever before, and that’s why we are challenging you to help us meet our 12,000-pound food goal. We hope you will join us in fighting huger insecurity here in Anchorage!
We are excited to gather to support our neighbors here in Anchorage. To purchase tickets, donate to our Silent or Live Auctions, or to support Charity Ball, please visit our event website. All proceeds will go toward the new Catholic Social Services building. If you can’t make the in-person event, we hope you will visit the online silent auction.
This year’s “Together We Can: Building For The Future” will go toward the new Catholic Social Services building at 4600 Debarr Road. Your gift will be a part of something so much greater than just a physical building – it will provide the space and the resources needed to make a difference for another 50 years – securing our city’s future for generations to come.
Your contribution to our 2023 Together We Can Campaign will serve as the cornerstone to the new building, and our entire community. Together, we can create a strong Anchorage – by building for the future. Thank you for your support!
