October 28, 2015 - The goal was to raise 60 thousand cans in five days. The result was astounding. Students and staff, along with the support of its feeder schools and the community raised 125, 452 cans to line the shelves of the food bank heading into the holiday season.

The breakdown is twenty thousand dollars in cash collected and 25, 000 cans. Students will spend the day assisting with the transport of the food to the food bank warehouse.

The St. Charles College food drive started thirty years ago and has been a yearly tradition with its feeder schools - St. David's, Holy Trinity, Pius XII, St. John and St. Paul schools.

Principal Patty Mardero says "in thirty years this is the largest donation to date. The students really upped the ante for next year."
