Town Clerk Food Collection for the month of August
|Date:||August 1, 2017|
Dear City of Derby Colleagues and Friends,
Thank you very much! With your help, we delivered nearly 200 cans and jars of Tomato Sauce and 30 other food items and a $25.00 monetary donation to the St. Vincent DePaul Food Bank today. If you still have any cans or jars of Tomato Sauce please drop them off at City Hall or directly to St. Vincent DePaul Food Bank, 237 Roosevelt Drive, Derby, CT – 203.734.7577.
Summer is half over! Hopefully you can take some well-deserved vacation rest time! Kids will be back to school before you know it!
This month we will be collecting Jelly and Marshmallow Cream for the St. Vincent DePaul Food Bank.
Please consider donating some containers of jelly or marshmallow cream and bring them to the Town / City Clerk’s Office by the end of August 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
June – Ready to Eat Soup
July – Tomato Sauce
August – Jelly and Marshmallow Cream
January – Jelly
February - Mayonnaise
March - Beef Stew
April - Baked Beans
May - Pancake Mix & Syrup
June - Canned & Boxed Potatoes
July - Hamburger, Tuna, and Chicken Helper
