Food Drive Group Volunteering

Looking for a fun and meaningful way to give back to the community? Sign up to host a food and supply drive and help East Side Elders get much-needed groceries and supplies to seniors in St. Paul. Work together with your team, scouting group, church group, family, neighbors, or other group to make a big impact for our community elders. Together you can make posters, spread the word, collect items, and deliver the items to our nonprofit for distribution to seniors. This is an ongoing need and we are happy to work with your schedule. 

Our Community Events Coordinator is ready to help you set up your collection drive – and we have fun themes to choose from:

Spaghetti for Seniors

                Pasta, pasta sauce, shelf stable parmesan cheese

Spring Cleaning

                Laundry pods, dish soap, spray cleaner, paper towels

That’s Using Your Noodle!

                Tuna, egg noodles, cream of mushroom soup, canned peas

Soup for Supper

                Canned soup, crackers

Summer BBQ

                Baked beans, bbq sauce, cornbread mix, canned corn

….and more!
