The Fatima Family Center Thanksgiving Food Drive is currently underway. The students the Arrupe Scholars Program are trying to collect enough food to provide 100+ families in the Hough community with one week’s groceries plus a Thanksgiving dinner. Aramark will donate a turkey to each family and Dave’s Supermarkets will provide produce at cost (the Scholars raised money through the Footprints for Fatima 5K).
The Scholars try to collect enough non-perishables through a door-to-door collection in University Heights and an on-campus food collection. Due to the heavy rains this year, our donations were way down. Would you be willing to help us by bringing in a couple of items? We particularly need staples such as pasta, peanut butter, jelly, cereal, tuna fish, spaghetti sauce, tomato products, canned fruits, and vegetables.
Donation boxes are located throughout campus:
