During the Thanksgiving season, through volunteering and/or donating, our students have the opportunity to give THANKS for their blessings while also GIVING for the benefit of others!
To our annual Thanksgiving Food Drive, which is sponsored by National Honor Society, students, faculty, and staff donated a total of 1,819 canned goods and $50. The food was donated to House of Manna in Breese, and the money was donated to BCMW in Breese. Since 2005, the Mater Dei family has donated a total of 27,859 canned goods!
In addition, for the second year, members of our Student Council and Principal Dennis Litteken volunteered at the turkey giveaway hosted by Urban League of Metropolitan St. Louis on November 26, 2019.
We commend our students, faculty, and staff for their dedication to helping those in need!
