For more than 80 years, Saint Ignatius High School students have planned and executed a massive Christmas food drive that annually delivers 700 food baskets to needy Cleveland families. The student Core Team meets once weekly for about six weeks leading up to the food drive day, which usually occurs the Saturday before Christmas. In the three weeks leading up to Christmas vacation, the Saint Ignatius community donates “4 cans, 4 dollars, 4 others” to fill the baskets; this work, as well as assembling the baskets and coordinating delivery, is the responsibility of the Core Team.
Details for the 2020 Rini Family Christmas Food Drive are still being developed. Stay tuned.
Saint Ignatius students wishing to get involved with the Christmas Food Drive should contact Mr. Connor Walters ‘09.
