Town Clerk Food Collection for April 2017

Date: April 1, 2017

Food Collection for the month of April 2017


Dear City of Derby Colleagues and Friends,


Thank you very much!  With your help, we delivered over 200 cans of fruit and 15 other food items to the St. Vincent DePaul Food Bank today.  If you still have any Canned Fruit please drop it off at City Hall or directly to St. Vincent DePaul Food Bank, 237 Roosevelt Drive, Derby, CT – 203.734.7577.


April is here! Spring is in the air, baseball season has started, flowers are blooming, and allergies are in full force.


This month we will be collecting Paper Towels or Tissues for the St. Vincent DePaul Food Bank.


Please consider donating some paper towels or Tissues and bring them to the Town / City Clerk’s Office by the end of April and we will deliver them.


I have attached a flyer, as requested, for your convenience.


Please forward to friends, relatives, associates and colleagues.  We appreciate your support.


Thank you for your cooperation and possible participation.

For those who may be new to our distribution list, the Derby City Hall staff, in lieu of a Holiday Secret Santa Gift, donated food to the St. Vincent DePaul Food Pantry in December, 2015.


After discussions with the operators of the Food Bank, we asked them for monthly suggestions for food collections to concentrate on what is in short supply.  We decided that we would start a monthly collection of one specific item to help them feed those in need in our City and the Valley.
