Time to restock the pantry at St Francis House


300-ST-FRANCIS-CANS-VANKaren Lundquist, St. Francis House Special Events Coordinator, reported to Historic City News in St Augustine that on Saturday, February 28th from 11:00 a.m. to 6:00 p.m., Fiesta Falls will host a fun day of mini golf to help St. Francis House kick off their “Cans in the Van” food drive.

Anyone donating of a bag of non-perishable food items will receive a discount ticket to play the famous Fiesta Falls miniature golf course, on event day, for only $5.00.

“St. Francis House served more than 66,000 meals last year and distributed 2770 food boxes to local people in need. For that reason, keeping the pantry full is a constant challenge,” Lundquist told local Historic City News reporters. “A donation of 6-8 non-perishable food items on Saturday will help St. Francis House continue to serve the homeless and those in need in the community.”

Fiesta Falls is located one mile south of the St. Augustine Beach Pier at 818 A1A Beach Boulevard. The St. Francis House van, with staff and volunteers, will be at the location on event day to receive your donations and furnish discount golf coupons.

Harbor Community Bank is sponsoring the day of fun. Discount mini-golf tickets can only be used on event day. The rain date is Sunday, March 1st.

Food items such as tuna, Mac’n’cheese, rice and boxed meals are very helpful.
