Local High School Students Collect Food For Thanksgiving Food Drive


WASHINGTON (JCHAYWARD.COM) –A recent study showed that 1 in every 2 children in D.C. is at risk of hunger. To combat this, students at Archbishop Carroll High School are launching their annual Thanksgiving Food Drive now through Sunday, November 18.

Located at 4300 Harewood Road in Northeast D.C., all community members are invited to participate by collecting food donations or volunteering.

A complete list of the items needed are online here.

You can also sponsor a family this holiday season. Archbishop Carroll High School asks that you fill up a box filled with groceries and make a $20 donation for a turkey. Families have to know if the school can provide groceries for them, so you must commit to a box as soon as possible, and drop the groceries off no later than Saturday, Nov. 17th.

In 2011, the Archbishop Carroll Thanksgiving Food Drive provided food for 11 local agencies and food baskets with a Thanksgiving meal and two weeks worth of additional food for approximately 300 families.

If you are interested in sponsoring a family or volunteering, contact Stacy Rubens at srubens@archbishopcarroll.org.
