York Catholic schools host Thanksgiving food drives

Schools across the York Catholic District School Board have partnered with the charity, Missionaries of the Poor, to host Thanksgiving food drives to support people in Haiti.

The Board-wide food drive called, “One Haiti, One Mercy,” aims to collect enough non-perishable food items to fill a 40 foot long container!

St. Joseph of the Worker CES in Thornhill was honoured to welcome special guests, Father Brian and Sister Myrna from Missionaries of the Poor recently, to support the school’s food drive efforts. Students and staff enjoyed singing and dancing with the pair, and learning about ways they can help their peers in Haiti.
