Pope John Paul II High School in Royersford delivered 107 full Thanksgiving meals on Tuesday, Nov. 24 — including turkey, corn, green beans, cranberry sauce, dinner rolls, mashed potatoes, stuffing and a pie — to needy families throughout Montgomery County and beyond.
The project saw PJP students raise $5,686 for the initiative. Before heading out Tuesday morning to make deliveries personally, the students began with Mass at 9:30 a.m. in the school chapel.
