BREAD OF LIFE FOOD DRIVE

Overview

  • Bread of Life Food Drive (B.O.L.D.) began in the Spring of 1992 as a response by the ND Club of Staten Island to Father Malloy’s request to every Alumni Club to give a service to their local community

  • ND Club of Staten Island considered several community service projects:

    • Paint a house

    • Serve in a soup kitchen

    • Visit Nursing Home

    • Do a Food Drive

  • Club selected a Food Drive

    • First year, Club collected food items in the Spring from targeted schools

    • In 1992 B.O.L.D. collected 7,000 items of food from 11 schools for 4 not-for-profit organizations on Staten Island that served people in need

Overview (continued)

  • FAST FORWARD TO 2010

    • B.O.L.D. collects 55,000-60,000 items of food, from 105 schools to help 23 not-for-profit organizations on Staten Island that serve people in need

  • HOW DID WE GET TO THE SUCCESS OF 2010?

    • “Luck of Irish” & help from The Holy Spirit

    • Club members totally involved in one or many aspects of B.O.L.D.

    • As demand and need for food grew, increased participation by more schools, private businesses, labor unions, youth groups

    • Publicize the Food Drive – Sometimes the media will promote a great story

History & Background

  • 1992, original B.O.L.D. tied into the 150th Anniversary of The University of Notre Dame. B.O.L.D. always complements the mission of Notre Dame to serve the people of God in the name of Our Lady’s University.

  • Each year the number of schools which have heard about our “Spring” Food Drive wanted to become involved.

  • Each year, local not-for-profits approached the ND Club of Staten Island to be involved in receiving much needed food for the families they served.

  • As the Food Drive grew each year, so did the time needed to plan and execute B.O.L.D. (we will cover planning in our next slides).
