St. Michael’s Catholic High School students and staff engaged in a friendly whole school competition to see which “house” could bring in the most food items. The school uses a “house” system for all competitions, with the four “houses” of Courage, Hope, Faith and Justice. The “houses” donated equally throughout the two-week collection, but in the end, it was Faith which brought in the most. St. Michael tries to incorporate the Catholic Social Teachings into all schoolwide initiatives and Thanksgiving was no exception.
The result was a pile of food, as shown, for donation to the Holy Cross Church Knights of Columbus Council 5333 Food Bank, for which the Knights are extremely grateful. Due to the COVID restrictions, the Knights could not enter the school to take delivery, so a bunch of students (shown below) volunteered to bring the food out of the school to load it in our cars.
A big THANK YOU FOR GIVING to the students, staff and community of SAINT MIKE’s.
