Thank you to everyone who participated in the 2013 Share Your Thanksgiving Food Drive. This year, we collected nearly 50,000 pounds or the equivalent of 41,000 meals for our hungry neighbors.
Your contributions went a long way to create hope in the lives of so many who might not have otherwise had a Thanksgiving dinner.
The 39th Annual Catholic Charities Benefit Dinner was a great success.
With well over 350 generous individuals attending, our net proceeds reached nearly $42,000. We were pleased to honor Pam Grimes as this year's Agency Council Distinguished Service Award recipient and Sue Heck as this year's Agency Council President's Award recipient.
Your generosity enables us to continue supporting the thousands of individuals who will need the help and hope provided by Bethany House, Ryves Youth Center, Terre Haute Catholic Charities Foodbank and the Christmas Store.
Teams competed on the field. You competed on the sidelines.
With your help, the Foodbank collected an additional 36,000 pounds of food or the equivalent of 30,000 meals to help feed the hungry in west central Indiana.
The winning schools were:
First Place, $1,500 - Northview High School
Second Place, $1,000 - West Vigo High School
Third Place, $500 - Terre Haute North High School
Thanks to everyone who participated!
