Local Young Men Collect Food items for Kettering Food Bank

On a recent cold evening 25 young men, with their leaders from the Kettering congregation, collected donations of food from the 230 regularly attending members who live in the four towns in the congregations boundaries for the local St Jude’s Kettering food bank.  Young Men President, Keith Reynolds remarked, “The Young Men planned the activity and were keen to help out so 16 year old Luke liaised with Sue Preece of the Relief Society presidency (local women's organisation of the congregation) and a list was sent around to all the women for collections to be made from their homes on the youth night.”

Boxes and boxes of food donations were then handed over to the local food bank in Kettering, which were gratefully received.  Regular donations from the women are organised on a monthly basis but the leaders were so pleased with the  response from the young men that they asked the Young Men presidency if the service project could be repeated again.

This is an ongoing project by the congregation for the St Jude’s food bank who rely on donations from the public as well as businesses in the area.
