Education is Essential

COVID-19 has presented a tremendous challenge for Saint Ignatius High School to balance our mission of providing an academically rigorous, Catholic, Jesuit education along with the health and safety recommendations of leading healthcare experts. On Monday, March 15, students returned to full-day, in-person learning.

Rini Family Christmas Food Drive

For more than 80 years, the Saint Ignatius community has rallied to bring a Christmas meal to local families in need. Students collect 4 cans, 4 dollars, 4 others to prepare 700 food baskets as part of the annual Rini Family Christmas Food Drive.

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.

The 2020 Rini Family Christmas Food Drive basket delivery took place on: Saturday, December 19

Thank you to all the families who helped us make the 2020 Christmas Food Drive a success. A special thank you to the Student Senate, which partnered with us for their annual Patel Family Toy Drive.
