Religion instructor, Martha Ann Warnke, provided a sign-up sheet requesting students to bring canned goods and other items that would make for a perfect Thanksgiving dinner. As items were brought to school, it was displayed on their respective tables.
“We had a great response this year,” Warnke said. “We still have $70 left in cash donations, which will be used to purchase more turkeys and ham.”
The boarding students along with the faculty provided money to purchase turkeys and hams; and the commuting students contributed the much needed side dish items from cake and pumpkin pie mix to green beans and stuffing.
William Calvert, Middle School Principal, said this is an annual event at St. Bernard Middle School. “Our students and their families always come through with enough food to feed several families at this time of year.”
All food is donated to the St. Vincent DePaul Food Bank at Sacred Heart Church in Cullman.
