Drive Leaders: The Freshman Pastoral Team, Mr. Stephen Deves, and Mrs. Julie Lewis.
Our annual Food Drive collects food items and money that will be used throughout the year in our Freshman Service Program. Below, you will find a donation list, organized by homerooms. Please stick to the items on the student’s specific advisory list. Cash/Check donations are also very important in order to buy the perishable food from week to week. When donating, the student should bring his items/money to the Commons in the morning and locate the table for his Advisory.
To help build some energy around the drive, there will be a friendly competition! Any item donated (from their homeroom list) will receive 1 point and each dollar donated will receive 2 points. We will have Advisory winners and grade-level winners, with prizes for each. There may be periodic prizes throughout the drive for the most points in one day, midway check-ins, etc.
The Food Drive is one of our biggest fundraisers we hold throughout the year. We truly do appreciate your generosity during this effort and hope that you are able to bring your son into the importance of serving others. Thank you for helping make this a success!
*****PLEASE check expiration dates on all items before purchasing! To help prevent waste, look for items with the farthest expiration dates. Please do not send items that have expired or will expire in the next few months.******
Who It Supports
The food items and money that are collected are used to prepare meals during our Freshmen Service Program that will be served at Garfield Place, a division of Peter & Paul Community Services. Every freshman will participate in cooking a meal for residents at Garfield Place and we have two service days a week. So we need your help in making this happen!
Any extra food that we cannot use will be donated to St. Louis Area Foodbank.
Please contact Mr. Stephen Deves (email@example.com) in Campus Ministry. Thank you in advance for the support of our Food Drive and our local brothers and sisters who will benefit from these meals!
