Mount St. Mary Academy’s service group, Z Club, is holding its Season of Sharing Drive throughout November and December. Between Nov. 1 and Dec. 20, students will be collecting food, recyclables and warm clothes to help support and care for our neighbors this winter.
Canned goods and other nonperishable food items are being collected for community meals. with a few weeks left, the students collected over 7,000 food items, almost to their goal of 10,000. This year’s donations will stock the shelves for the winter at St. Luke’s Mission of Mercy, St. Francis Parish, St. John’s Food Pantry and Buffalo City Mission.
The students are also collecting empty bottles and will use the returns to purchase more food items for the drive. Empty bottles can be recycled in designated bins in the Academic Learning Center and in room 107.
Winter coats, hats, gloves and other cold weather accessories are also being collected at Mount St. Mary. The Z Club students will donate these items to Colvin Cleaners’ Coats 4 Kids program, which supports Ken-Ton Closet.
We strongly believe giving back to our friends and neighbors in the Western New York community is a perfect way to thank God for all He has done for us.
