Fill Up the Truck THIS FRIDAY

March 6: Team Spring/Summer vs.
Team Fall/Winter
Fill Up the Truck is BACK! Fill Up the Truck is our friendly competitive food drive to see which team can raise the most food and toiletry items for local Catholic Charities. This year we will be supporting St. Stephen's Community House (March 6) and St. Francis Outreach (April 4). Both agencies have asked for a big push of toiletry items, pasta, cereal and peanut butter. Any monetary donations will be collected for the Bottom's Up Diaper Drive and the MoMM Foundation. We thank you in advance for your support of these student-driven collections!
