A charitable heart and a competitive drive to win the spirit stick helped Sacred Heart School collect its largest food donation in the history of the school’s Thanksgiving food drive.

"Cases, not cans" was the challenge, and students in grades K-12 responded. SHS student leaders, faculty, and parents delivered 7,272 pounds of food to Open Door Ministries in November. That’s 72 percent more than what was raised in 2019.

All food stays local to support our neighbors in need. Pictured: Chris Martin ’93 hauls a truck full of food and helpers to Open Door.
