From Bishop Manogue:
Bishop Manogue Catholic High School's Sodality club will hold its annual Thanksgiving food drive Nov. 12–19, 2013. During that week, the club hopes to collect at least 8,000 food items, which will be donated to Sister Carmen Baca of Our Lady of Snows Catholic Church and Holy Child Early Learning Center. Sister Carmen distributes food to hundreds of families throughout the area each holiday season.
The public can help the club reach their goal by donating non-perishable food items or grocery store gift cards. Donations can be brought to school's front office at 110 Bishop Manogue Dr. between 8:00 am and 4 pm. Students will also be collecting donations outside the Scolari's on South Virginia on Saturday, Nov. 9, Sunday, Nov. 10, and Saturday, Nov. 16.
A long tradition at Bishop Manogue, the Thanksgiving Food Drive has been organized by Sodality for at least 45 years. According to club moderator Anna Campbell, they collected 9124 food items during last year's food drive. "There is a lot of enthusiasm for the event here at Manogue," said Campbell. "It really brings the school community together."
