Canned Food Drive

The campus ministries of Northwest Missouri State University will be trick or treating in several Maryville neighborhoods for non-perishable food items for the Ministry Center.

Suggested non-perishable food items are those that could be used for meals for the upcoming holidays of Thanksgiving and Christmas, such as canned vegetables, chicken, soup or fruit; instant mashed potatoes, gravy or rice; or apple sauce, oatmeal, or cooking ingredients. Service Co-Chair for the Newman Catholic Center Christopher Parnacott says that the idea came from the existing canned food drive combined with the fun of a night of trick or treating.

The trick or treaters will be going through neighborhoods from 7 to 9 tonight, include from first to fifth street on the Campus side, James Avenue and Icon Road by Country Club Road, South Dunn Street to Piers Street, and Winsler Avenue. If leaving a food donation outside, they request you put it in a brown paper bag marked with a cross. You can also drop off donations at the Ministry Center or the Newman Center on Fourth Street, ideally between 7 to 9.
