OLG school collects 22K food items for St. Vincent de Paul


Our Lady of Grace Catholic School’s fifth-grade class recently completed its annual food drive, surpassing its goal of collecting 17,500 by nearly 5,000.

From Oct. 29 through Nov. 4, students collected donations of food and home items for Noblesville’s St. Vincent de Paul food pantry.

For nearly 10 years the school has sponsored the drive where students lead the charge. Early each morning, the fifth-grade class arrived at school to collect goods brought by other students, staff, parents, grandparents and parishioners of Our Lady of Grace Catholic Church. Each day was themed to ensure a variety of items were collected. Monday was “Rise n’ Shine Monday” in order to collect breakfast foods. Tuesday was “All Cleaned Up and Oh Baby” to collect toiletries and baby items. As the week progressed, different items came pouring in and a daily tally was kept.

On the final day of the drive, the last item was counted, and in all, 22,180 items were collected.
