St. Charles East, Blue Goose Team Up to Expand Food Drive

Students will collect nonperishable food donations in front of the Blue Goose from 8 to 10:30 a.m., and will pick up donations in St. Charles neighborhoods from 8 a.m. to 1 p.m. Saturday.

Members of the St. Charles East High School Student Council will collect food for their annual Food Drive this Saturday, Nov. 3, 2012, according to a release from the Downtown St. Charles Partnership.

Fliers are distributed in neighborhoods throughout the city to let residents know about the collection, which goes door to door. This year, the student council is teaming up with the Blue Goose Market in downtown St. Charles, where they will collect nonperishable foods in front of the store from 8 to 10:30 a.m.

The St. Charles East High School Student Council has been conducting the food drive for 10 years, collecting nonperishable food items which then are donated to The Salvation Army. Notifying residents of the collection date and times by flier makes it easy for people to participate.

Last year’s collection effort brought in more than 3,500 items, a number the students hope to increase this year. The believe that partnering with the Blue Goose Market will help them achieve their goal.

The neighborhood collection in St. Charles will be from 8 a.m. to 1 p.m. Saturday, Nov. 3, 2012.

The students ask that residents who are interested in helping leave their donations in a paper bag on their doorstep before 8 a.m. They also encourage people to stop by the Blue Goose Market on Saturday morning to support their effort.
