Holy Rosary Food Drive Fills Hearts and Pantries in Wyoming

Holy Rosary Catholic School has once again shown its dedication to service through another incredibly successful food drive. Organized by the school’s devoted students and staff, the event received an overwhelming response from Wyoming residents.

On Wednesday, June 12, the Grade 5-6 students distributed nearly 500 decorated paper grocery bags throughout the neighborhood, each containing a note requesting donations of food and household items and asking residents to leave contributions on their porches for collection. Two days later, on Friday, June 14, the Grade 7-8 students returned to collect the donations. The response was remarkable, with almost every home supporting the initiative with a donation.

The food drive’s success was due to the diligent efforts of several key individuals. Lesley Maniuk, an Educational Assistant, played a crucial role in coordinating the event, while teachers Colleen Rice and Sean Stroobandt provided invaluable support, ensuring that the drive was well-organized and smoothly executed. Assisting with the Food Drive was our custodian Jason McGill and Grade 8 parent, Jermery Sittler.

Acting Principal Luana Sfalcin expressed her heartfelt gratitude to everyone involved, saying, “The overwhelming success of this food drive truly showcases the compassion and generosity of the Wyoming community. Our students and staff have shown remarkable leadership. We couldn’t be prouder of their efforts and the positive impact they’ve made.”

The collected items will significantly benefit local families in need, reflecting the deeply ingrained spirit of charity and service in the Holy Rosary school community. Thank you to everyone who made this incredible act of kindness possible.
