For years, the St. Sebastian’s community has come together to make a difference for our neighbors in need through the Thanksgiving Food Drive and this year was no exception. In the week leading up to Thanksgiving, our families, along with members of St. Bartholomew’s Parish, helped to “cram the van,” delivering non-perishable food items each morning during drop-off. The Food Drive, sponsored by St. Sebastian’s National Honor Society, benefits Catholic Charities' south and central regions with their food pantries in Brockton and Dorchester. These donations will help to restock shelves for those in need of food in the days following Thanksgiving.
On November 15, members of the senior class helped out at the Catholic Charities’ Dorchester location, preparing food, stocking shelves and distributing groceries at the food pantry, which routinely distributes 200 bags of groceries each day. Additionally, the seniors assisted Immigrant Family Service Institute in unloading a truck of food that will help fulfill IFSI’s mission to aid recent immigrants to the Boston area.
Thank you to our students and entire school community for being so generous in this time of need!
