Thanksgiving Food Drive

By Cassidy Darcey, Senior Communications Intern

The annual Notre Dame Thanksgiving Day Food Drive was a great success this year. Students collected over 2,400 items to donate to the Mount Carmel Guild. Since 1920, feeding the hungry and the poor in the community of Trenton and beyond has been one of Mount Carmel Guild 's top priorities. They currently serve 999-1,400 households each month. For the month of November, they have been collecting Thanksgiving food for families in need. Our donations helped to fill 65 meal bags for families this holiday season. The bags included all the trimmings for a Thanksgiving dinner as well as a ShopRite gift certificate. 

To make the drive fun, each year we held two competitions. The first contest was judged on how many cans or boxes of food a class donated. The winner of the food drive this year was Mr. Rowland’s class, who donated 244 items! Special mention goes to Ms. Wroblewski’s class (210), Ms. Dayton’s class (199), Ms. Ashe’s class (180), and Ms. Bauch’s class (179).

Our second competition was a donation box decorating contest. The winner of the box decorating contest was Ms. Dayton’s class with their “gravy boat box” creation. We would also like to acknowledge our second and third-place winners, Ms. Houghton and Ms. Hubert’s classes.

Special thanks to Mrs. Duff, Mrs. Tattory and Mrs. Melhorn for judging the boxes in the box decorating contest, and the Service Religion students, who counted all of our donations! Many blessings to all on this Thanksgiving hoiliday.
