Cherokee IC Church Food Drive for C.A.P.

Monday, September 10, 2012

Youth from Immaculate Conception Church in Cherokee will be conducting the 19th annual door-to-door "Scavenger Hunt for C.A.P."

They will be looking for non-perishable food and household products for the Christian Action Program (C.A.P.) food pantry on Wednesday from 7 p.m. to 8 p.m. in Cherokee.

The C.A.P. pantry is an ecumenical effort to provide food disbursements for the less fortunate of Cherokee County several times a year, or on emergency basis, by appointment. The food collected now will be used throughout the winter months.

Groups of students from grades 6-11 with adult chaperones will canvas assigned areas of the town to "hunt" for donations of canned fruits, vegetables, soups and juices, tuna, peanut butter, cereal, pasta, soap, and paper products. Your generosity is greatly appreciated. Cash donations for meat and perishable items will also be accepted.

If you live in Cherokee, expect these young "scavengers" to stop at your house on Wednesday. Rural residents are invited to drop off donations in the main entrance of the Immaculate Conception Church at 709 W. Cedar St.
