2018 Christmas Food Basket Project - Request for Donations

Each year we partner with Operation Bootstrap to provide a Christmas basket of food for households in need. This year our goal is to provide 80 baskets. We rely on Brother Knights, their families, friends, and community supports to help us with non-perishable food donations to help fill the baskets. We purchase perishable items just before the baskets are distributed with monetary donations we receive.

The list below shows the list of items we are collecting and the amount needed for each item. In order to efficiently manage our collection of items we kindly ask that you stick to the items on the list and to donate a 1/4 or more of the item wanted. (It becomes difficult to manage if we only get a few of an individual item. So for example, we need 80 boxes of stuffing mix, receiving at least 20 would be appreciated.) The list will be updated periodically .

You can bring the items to the KC Columbus Clubhouse at 401 West Clark Street, Stevens Point prior to the Council meeting (6:30pm) on the first and third Thursday of the month. We will be collecting food donations until December 6 and monetary donations until December 13. Baskets will be delivered on Saturday, Dec. 15. Contact Jeff Slowinski for more information.
