Anniversary Food Drive

Olivet Church was chartered in September of 1880. As part of our 125th anniversary celebration in 2005, we launched a food drive in September with the goal of collecting one bag of food for each year of Olivet’s life and ministry. The food donated was delivered to the Emergency Food Bank, which provides a three-day food supply to households in the area who find themselves with an emergency need. The drive was both fun and successful. We have continued it each September, and each year we have surpassed our goal. The Emergency Food Bank pantry stocks are typically very low in late summer, and Olivet’s Anniversary Food Drive greatly helps with restocking efforts.
