Middle School students assists families
Thanksgiving just got better for a few families in Cullman as students at St. Bernard Preparatory Middle School collected enough food to adopt as many as four families through Saint Vincent de Paul at Sacred Heart Church in Cullman.
Martha Ann Warnke, who spearheads the canned food drive, was delighted with the food items being donated. “We sent a request for everything a family needs for Thanksgiving dinner, and we are so happy with the way our students and their families responded.”
William Calvert, principal at St. Bernard Middle School, said the students collected the food items in just over one week, and were to be commended for their generous contributions.
Among the contributed items were turkeys, hams, canned pumpkin, cranberry sauce, green beans, cream style corn, canned sweet potatoes, stuffing mix, marshmallows, jello, frozen pie shells, pudding mix.
