CHS Hosts Food Drive in Support of Greater Baton Rouge Food Bank

In response to today’s article in The Advocate regarding the Greater Baton Rouge Food Bank being at their lowest level of supplies since Hurricane Katrina, Catholic High will host a food drive.  Students have been asked to bring in non-perishable items to the Back-to-School Dance tonight at CHS.  Students will have the opportunity to bring in items each day next week in their first period classes.  The Food Drive will run Friday, August 19 – Friday, August 26. 

íÍWe constantly try to impart to our young men the responsibility that each of us has to positively impact  the world in which we live and to change our community for the better.  This food drive is a perfect opportunity for our students to make a real, recognizable difference within our own area.  More importantly, though, it is a chance for us to do our part in continuing Christí´s mission of service to those most in need and to embrace our call to solidarity with all of our human family,” stated CHS Religion Teacher Scott Manning ’01. 

“I have always been so proud of the response of Catholic High students and faculty during our food drives, Rice Bowl collection, toy drive, along with the other numerous opportunities Catholic High has to be of service to others. I know that the students of Catholic High will respond positively to the need of the Greater Baton Rouge Food Bank and assist them in their present time of need,” commented CHS Principal Lisa Harvey.
