Bears and Regals Support Sudbury Food Banks

October 14, 2005 - As part of an annual coordinated food drive at Marymount Academy and St. Benedict, members of the St. Benedict Bears football team recently assisted Marymount Catholic Charities Council and students from Marymount Academy in helping to load 6,000 food items into U-Hauls and vans to be transported to the Inner City Home on Elm Street. With the 5,000 items collected at St. Benedict, this left other students with the task of unloading more than 11,000 food items at Inner City Home.

"This food drive is an annual event involving the St. Benedict Bears and the Marymount Regals," stated Dennis Kennelly, Chaplain for both schools. "Students from each school keenly look forward to the good-natured competition to see which school can collect the most food items in the two-week period. This year the girls win the bragging rights but the Bears students claim they will regain the title next year." The St. Benedict Bears and Marymount Regal high schools would like to thank Spencer Furniture and U-Haul on Highway 69 South for donating the vans and trucks for transporting the food items to the Inner City Home.
