Dire Food/Gift card Donations needed to the Leesburg Catholic Charities Food Bank

Your Knights of Columbus Council with the support and generosity of the Parishioners of St Francis de Sales this year since August have donated 18,124 pounds of food and in the last two months has donated $5,403 dollars in cash and gift cards to the Leesburg Catholic Charities food bank to help thousands of Loudoun’s most food needy.  We all are now faced with new challenges.  The Covid 19 virus is affecting every part of our society, including the cancellation of Masses at our respective churches, the increase need of those who are holding lower wage jobs who are not working, those who have had jobs but now are not getting paid. The demand for food has increased because of the above. While the food bank has sufficient food for the short term, they anticipate having to obtain more goods in the near future.  While some will come from the St. Lucy Food Project warehouse in Manassas, their ability to meet the need is limited. Our Share Sunday/milk and egg collections are currently suspended but the need is more than ever needed! Please read below to see how you can help:

We beseech you to consider making a monetary contribution (gift cards from any grocery store and/or checks payable to “St. Francis Council 11136”) so we can make a payment to the Catholic Charities St Lucy Project so they can order and buy groceries online.  Please mention “Food Donation” in the memo line of checks. We will collect checks to mail to the food bank on April 10th and then the 2nd and 4th Fridays of the month until this crisis ends. Checks and gift cards should be sent to:

St. Francis Council 11136
PO Box 1274
Purcellville, VA 20134

Thank you and God Bless!!
