Rallying the Can Collecting Troops
Tomorrow, St. Charles College along with its feeder schools will know if they have crushed their can collecting goal. The school set out to collect 60 thousand cans in support of the Sudbury Food Bank this season as part of its annual collection blitz.
The high school is working in partnership with St. Paul, St. John, St. Bernadette, Pius, St. David, St. Raphael, St. Andrew Catholic Elementary schools. Student can collect a combination of canned foods and cash. Last year, they surpassed their goal by collecting more than 112 thousand cans.
The food drive began more than 25 years ago and its founder, former student Jim Szilva still takes part in the drive with his former high school. The school also teams up with Q92 and KISS 105.3 to Stuff a Bus full of food. The radio stations also broadcasted live from the school parking lot on the bus all week.
Tomorrow morning, the collection totals will be revealed and the food will then be transported to the Sudbury Food Bank warehouse.
