A Chance to Give Back – Canned Food and Clothing Drive


Do the Can Can Can – If You Can Can Can!

It’s time to kick up your legs and join in the fun as our airship brings you its fourth philanthropic event of the year!

Search your pantry! Clean out your closets! Then bring your canned goods – worn attire- unused jackets – old baby clothes and team up with Her Royal Airship Ashanti as we host our first ever Canned Food and Clothing Drive. Starting November 7th, HRA Ashanti will be collecting items for St. Vincent de Paul on the following dates:

  • November 7th  during the November Salon at Molly Malone’s,
  • November 18th at the Cincinnati Geek Club at Molly Malone’s and lastly
  • December 5th  at the December Salon at Molly Malone’s

The Society of St Vincent de Paul is an international voluntary organization dedicated to serving the poor and disadvantaged. They work personally with those in need, regardless of race or creed and strive to provide spiritual, emotional and material assistance. The Cincinnati Chapter of St. Vincent de Paul has been working personally with Cincinnati and Hamilton County and their neighbors for more than 140 years. Through our Canned Food and Clothing Drive, HRA Ashanti hopes to assist St Vincent de Paul in providing life’s most basic needs to families right here in Cincinnati.

Due to the upcoming cold months, winter clothing and winter coats are especially needed. In addition, men’s clothing and shoes are in short supply and hence considered highly valuable. However, any and all clothes and food donations are helpful – so please feel free to donate anything you’d be willing to part with. Other key requested donation items include:

Needed Food Pantry Items:

  • Peanut Butter
  • Canned Protein (such as tuna or chicken)
  • Cereal
  • “Meals-in-a-Can,” such as Ravioli, Beef Stew, etc.
  • Canned Fruit

Needed Thrift Store Items:

  • Clothing
  • Jewelry
  • Shoes: men’s and children’s especially needed
  • Sheets & blankets
  • Household items

HRA Ashanti is currently scheduled to collect items at three different times and locations throughout the month of the drive in order to make it easier for the steampunk community to participate and help out.
