The can drive above happens every October, as Sacred Heart School works with our local VFW post to collect extra food for the upcoming holidays. All grades, PK-8, participate in bringing food items. Teachers tally the items by classroom so we can award a pizza party to the class that brings in the most donations. When it is time to deliver the items, several VFW members come to the school and our middle school students pack up and help load the boxes for the VFW members to deliver to Red Rock here in Boone.

At other times during the year, students bring canned food items to offer up before Mass. Those items are combined with the food items brought by parishioners and taken to the food pantry.
