OAKVILLE — St. Mary Magdalen Parish of Oakville will hold a food drive from 2 to 5 p.m. Saturday, October 17, and from 8 a.m. to noon Sunday, October 18, in the church parking lot, 16 Buckingham St.

Donations of non-perishable food items benefit the St. Vincent DePaul Mission of Waterbury.

A truck from the mission will be parked in the church parking lot over the weekend and items may be dropped off.

Organizers ask that expiration dates be checked and glass jars be avoided due to their delicate nature.

Volunteers will be on hand to assist donors.

Monetary donations can also be made with checks payable to St. Vincent DePaul Mission of Waterbury, Inc.
