Another record breaking year! Over 30,000 cans collected on Spirit Day! And the WINNERS are…the impoverished who receive support from Sister Regis Food Cupboard, House of Mercy, and Bethany House.
As part of the annual Spirit Week tradition, the high school grades at Mercy collected 32,000 food items which were donated to area food pantries including Sister Regis Food Cupboard, Bethany House, and House of Mercy. In addition to the 9th, 10th, 11th, and 12th graders, nearly a dozen alumnae returned to the school to make donations and help deliver the items to the food pantries along with students and parents. Kudos to the seniors who broke the all-time record for the number of donated items raised by any class in Mercy’s history. The tradition of collecting food for those in need is one of the ways Mercy students demonstrate Hospitality and Compassionate Service, two of the Core Values of the Sisters of Mercy.
