We’d like to give a sincere thank you to our friends at Castles N Coasters who hosted a food drive for St. Mary’s this past Saturday, September 25th.. Castles N Coasters gave FREE admission to anyone who came and donated 10 cans of food to St. Mary’s. It was a HUGE success!
- More than 4,000 people donated food
- We filled 2 ½ short tractor trailers
- A total of 38,833 pounds of food was collected!
That makes this food drive the largest one day corporate collection event in the past 10 years. Wow! This is the second year in a row Castles N Coasters has offered this special on a day during Hunger Action Month to support St. Mary’s. Last year, around 14,000 pounds were collected – we more than doubled that this year thanks to all of the generous donors that came through.
Thanks again to all involved. More than 38,000 meals will be provided to hungry families across the state because of this food drive!
