Turkey Day Race Food Drive
In 2018, St. Mary's and St. Augustine's partnered with the Baldwinsville Kiwanis Turkey Day Race to hold a huge food drive for the first time! After seeing the success of the food drive, we have made it our mission to continue to help those in the Baldwinsville Community with this food drive every year!
The food collected during this drive is distributed to a variety of local charities including:
The Baldwinsville Food Pantry
The Samaratin Center
The local VFW Food Bank
A special emphasis is placed on food that is healthy and easily prepared for/by children who are in need.
How can you help?
Volunteer to help at a specific food collection time/location. Volunteer sign ups are available here.
Fill a bag with groceries and return it during one of the Food Drive times. Suggested food lists are below.
Sponsor individuals to run/walk the race. Money raised by the Kiwanis goes towards improving the lives of children and families in Baldwinsville and CNY.
If you come to the race, wear your St. Mary's Spirit Wear and show the community the Parish you belong to!
Co-sponsoring this event give us as a parish a great opportunity to participate in a community event, to share our faith in a broad way, and to give back to those who are less fortunate. For more information on this event, check this page and our Parish News for updates!
