Reverse Advent Calendar Food Pantry Drive In December

The Fairview Heights Food Pantry continues to need our help to get them restocked for the needs of the community after depletion from the Holidays. Join us in December for this special Food Pantry Drive.

How To Get Involved In December

Get a box, then each day add a food pantry donation item to the box.  On December 24th, you should have 24 items in the box. Drop off the box at the Christ Church Fairview Heights Campus on Sunday, December 26th.

On December 27th, the Food Pantry Team will deliver the donations to the Fairview Heights Food Pantry to restock them after the holidays. Late donation boxes may also be delivered on Sunday, January 2nd at all services at the FH Campus. (please do not drop off donation boxes at our Christmas Eve Services).

Monetary donations can be dropped off at the FH Campus Welcome Center on December 26th and January 2nd at all the FH Campus services. Checks should be made payable to: “Fairview Heights Food Pantry.” Envelopes should be to the attention of: “Kevin Nowak – Food Pantry.”
