FOOD DRIVE - SEPTEMBER 16-23, 2016
The SLUH Food Drive is a school wide event that takes place each September. Each homeroom is assigned particular items. The food items and money that are collected are used to prepare predetermined meals for our Freshmen Service and Community Service (CSP) feeding shelter programs. We currently cook and serve meals at three shelters: Peter & Paul Emergency Shelter in Soulard, Safe Haven in Benton Park, and Karen House Catholic Worker in North St. Louis City. All items should be brought to homerooms. Thank you in advance for your support of our first all-school drive of the year!
