Town Clerk Food Collection - May 2017
|Date:||May 2, 2017|
Dear City of Derby Colleagues and Friends,
Thank you very much! With your help, we delivered over 200 rolls of paper towels, over 70 boxes of tissues, and 200 other food items to the St. Vincent DePaul Food Bank today. If you still have any Paper Towels or Tissues please drop them off at City Hall or directly to St. Vincent DePaul Food Bank, 237 Roosevelt Drive, Derby, CT – 203.734.7577.
May is here! Mother’s Day is next week, Spring is in full bloom, and Memorial Day will be here before you know it!
This month we will be collecting Clear Broth and Saltine Crackers for the St. Vincent DePaul Food Bank.
Please consider donating some clear broth or saltine crackers and bring them to the Town / City Clerk’s Office by the end of May 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.
Here is what we have collected so far:
January - Hamburger, Tuna, and Chicken Helper
February - Pancake Mix & Syrup
March – Canned Fruit
April – Paper Towels or Tissues
May – Clear Broth or Saltine Crackers
January – Jelly
February - Mayonnaise
March - Beef Stew
April - Baked Beans

June - Canned & Boxed Potatoes
July - Hamburger, Tuna, and Chicken Helper
