The Knights of Columbus at Holy Trinity Church in El Dorado Hills graciously hosted an Easter Ham Food Drive to benefit the Food Bank of El Dorado County.

Holy Trinity’s Knights of Columbus collected almost 1,300 pounds of hams and more than $400 in financial donations.

“Knights of Columbus has proven to be a steward for the food bank and are committed to our at-risk population,” said Mike Sproull, food bank founder.

“The food bank is proud of its partnership with Holy Trinity’s Knights of Columbus,” added Carey Fong, food bank communications and development director. “They are dedicated to our community and have organized and implemented several successful food drives to benefit the Food Bank, we are grateful for their generosity and continued partnership.”

“The success of this food drive could not have been possible without the efforts of many people especially Pat Shields-Maher of the Holy Trinity’s Human Concerns ministry and, of course, the generosity of the Parishioners,” said Art Aguilar of the Knights of Columbus. “The Knights of Columbus are truly proud to be committed to continue efforts with the food bank to help in this extremely important issue of local hunger.”

El Dorado County is a very giving community and the food bank looks forward to working with many more organizations this year. Any family service organization, faith-based group, school group, etc. that would like to help should call (530) 621-9950 or e-mail [email protected].

Contributions can be mailed to the Food Bank of El Dorado County at 4550 Business Drive, Cameron Park 95682 or online at foodbankedc.org or by calling Carey Fong at (530) 621-9950.
