Food Drive For The Houston Food Bank
The Italian National Honor Society and Leo Club are joining forces this Fall to collect cans for the Houston Food Bank.

This is always a very successful food drive and every year the school collaborates in a friendly competition to win our final prize: Tasty Italian Tiramis├╣!

Just like in the past, the teacher who collects the most food will receive a dessert for her/his classes!

The INHS and Leo Club members are distributing the collection boxes right now.

The Food Drive will continue until December 12, 2019.

We are extremely #CardinalProud of our school showing its spirit by caring for others.
