“There are many of our neighbors that are in need and sometimes that need is hidden. We really work as a community to support our most vulnerable.”

For ten years, the youth of St. Eleanor’s Youth Ministry Program have been doing a food drive on Superbowl Weekend to support our community!


How wonderful this is!

Next weekend, February 1 & 2, these youth will gather together for a weekend of collecting, sorting, and boxing food to be delivered to FOUR different local food pantries:

  • St. Vincent DePaul Society Food Pantry at St. Eleanor Parish in Collegeville
    St. Vincent DePaul Society Food Pantry at St. Mary Parish in Schwenksville
  • Spring-Ford Project Outreach in Royersford
  • The Daily Bread Food Pantry

Matt Kirsch, Director of Youth Ministry at St. Eleanor’s said of the experience, “Working with our teens is just heart-warming to me.” He has worked with many of these youth for multiple years now, watching them grow in their love for serving and helping others!

If you would like to help, please feel free to use grocery bags, reusable bags, or boxes from your home to deliver your donations.

Donations can be made:

Monday, January 27 through Friday, January 31: 630am – 9pm

Saturday, February 1: 3pm – 5pm

Sunday, February 2 from 7am – 1pm

Please drop your donations in the lobby of St. Eleanor’s at 647 Locust Street, Collegeville. (During the day on Saturday and Sunday, there will be youth available to help unload donations!)
