School-Wide Food Drive
Now through November 11th
We are proud to announce that the first community service project of the 2022-23 year will be a school-wide food drive to support Mount Carmel Guild in providing Mercer County families in need with food for the Thanksgiving holiday.
Each year the Mount Carmel Guild provides 700-900 families throughout Mercer County with turkey and trimmings for their Thanksgiving dinner. This year will be especially challenging for families in need and the Guild’s Thanksgiving program gives us a perfect opportunity to demonstrate our school’s spirit of caring. It also allows our students to learn about the needs of others and empowers them to make a difference in their own community. You may want to involve your children in choosing items for the Thanksgiving collection.
To help provide a complete Thanksgiving dinner package to each family, the Guild has a specific list of items they are seeking as contributions (see below).**Please do not include breakable or crushable items like glass jars, bottles, or cellophane bags.
The deadline to receive all items at the school is Friday, November 11th.
- Cranberry sauce
- Turkey gravy
- Green beans
- Collard greens
- Pumpkin filling
- Evaporated milk
- Instant mashed potatoes
- Pie crust mix
- Macaroni & cheese
