A Tradition of Service: Students Volunteer at St. Patrick’s Food Pantry

Food Drive 5

Joliet Catholic Academy students recently volunteered their time during lunch to volunteer at the St. Patrick’s Parish Food Pantry on Monday, October 26, 2015. The event featured 31 students from JCA , in conjunction with The Holy Trinity Knights of Columbus Council in Joliet , distributing food to the hungry during the St. Patrick Fresh Food Truck Distribution.The Knights of Columbus sponsor the food truck stop for the Catholic Charities Diocese of Joliet Mobile Food Pantry.

JCA Guidance Counselor Kris Horn chaperoned the students and said, “It was a great event for our kids to be a part of, to learn firsthand how true service affects those in need. We had so many that were willing to take time out of their school day to help out a great cause, and we were honored that the Knights of Columbus included us in their event”. The JCA students will return in November to St. Patrick’s with an annual truck donation to their Food Pantry.
