St. Stephen’s Community House & the Central Ohio Labor Council, AFL-CIO are collaborating to brighten the holiday season for those individuals and families who find themselves in a critical position due to situations such as strained incomes, job lay-offs, foreclosures and family illness. We are all familiar with families in financial turmoil that cannot afford to purchase the traditional food items. In an effort to minimize some of the hardship felt by families, we request support from area schools, churches and businesses. You, your business or organization can become a partner in this effort by collecting non-perishable food items (canned, boxed, bottled or dried goods), or provide financial support to purchase items such as chickens, turkeys, canned meats, bread, milk, fresh fruit, and potatoes. We would like to have all donations into St. Stephen’s by Friday, December 18, 2015.
