Helping Hunger and Homelessness
Unity of Livonia Takes up Collection for St. Christine Food Pantry
Unity of Livonia is holding their seventh annual Community Food Drive now through Sunday, April 9, to help St. Christine Christian Services, in Detroit, put an end to hunger. Both monetary donations and nonperishable canned and dry goods will be accepted at Unity of Livonia.
“100 percent of the collections will be donated directly to St. Christine Food Pantry, a local nonprofit organization that works in conjunction with St. Vincent DePaul to serve and distribute over 22,000 hot meals and 6,000 bags of supplementary groceries throughout the year to one of southeastern Michigan’s most vulnerable communities likely to experience homelessness,” Unity of Livonia director of operations and administration Nancy Bank says. “The food drive raises awareness of the hunger and nutrition challenges within our local communities.”
Monetary donations may be made by cash, check or charge. Please make checks payable to Unity of Livonia, and specify “Food Drive” on the notation line. Food goods may be dropped off Monday through Wednesday (10 a.m. to 4 p.m.) or Sunday (9:30 a.m. to noon).
