7th Annual “Have A Heart Restock Drive” assists local pantries
Drive runs January 29 – February 8, 2018
On Monday, January 29, the Sylvania Franciscan Village (SFV) kicks off its 7th annual Have a Heart Restock Drive to supply personal care items to six area outreach pantries: Bethany House, Claver House, Helping Hands of St. Louis, Our Lady of Lourdes Outreach Soup Kitchen, Sylvania Area Family Services, and USTogether.
Individuals are encouraged to donate unused personal care items in donation boxes at Lourdes University, Sylvania Schools and local businesses. “It’s important to assist our local outreach agencies after the holidays when their supplies have been greatly depleted. All donations of unused personal care items go directly to the agencies and those they serve,” says Ms. Sophia Lloyd, SFV Director.
The drive runs from January 29 – February 8 with distribution of items occurring on February 9.
Those wishing to make a monetary donation can also contact Ms. Lloyd at 419-824-3533.
