ICA March Food Drive Begins

Neil came to the food shelf after a long career and a lifetime of self-sufficiency. Nearing retirement he was diagnosed with cancer and needed help. Because of his illness, his ability to work was significantly curtailed, reducing his income. Because of that he couldn’t keep up with all his bills. Neil came to ICA for help and thanks in part to your gifts, they have been able to provide Neil with the food he needs to make ends meet. And while that food support is critical, they also provided him with a listening ear and emotional support as he navigates his cancer treatment. Thank you for helping them care for neighbors like Neil!


To ensure ICA can continue to provide for neighbors like Neil they need a significant community response. You can make a difference by helping ICA collect 200,000 lbs. of food and $300,000 during the month of March. All Saints has a goal of filling our pallet tote with 400 pounds of food.

You can bring your gifts of food to the pallet tote by the stairs anytime during the month of March. And you can make financial gifts through All Saints or directly to ICA via their website. When you make a gift through ICA’s website be sure to indicate that you are a member of All Saints.


It might also be helpful to know that ICA provides more than just food for our neighbors in need. They think of their services as encompassing: Food, Jobs, and Housing. In 2022 ICA helped more than 35 people find new employment. And they shared over $300,000 in rental support to help keep families in their apartment housing.
Thank you for ALL you do to help ICA care for those in our community who need a little extra support. Your gifts matter and are making a difference for the thousands of people like Neil who come seeking help. Thank you!
