The student government officers of St. Francis de Sales School, Aston, gathered Nov. 19 to display the abundance of food collected from the student body during the school’s annual Thanksgiving Food Drive.
Each classroom was assigned certain food items to collect and in the spirit of service and giving, the students stepped up to the task. All donations will be delivered to the St. Katherine Drexel Food Cupboard in Chester, just in time to prepare Thanksgiving food baskets for families.
St. Francis de Sales Parish has had a long-standing relationship helping the families registered at the food cupboard.
