More baskets are coming in but it looks like we will collect just under 450 Thanksgiving Baskets. I counted them about a half hour ago and we were up to 443 with 3 more that came in after I counted. Mrs. Henning, our communications director, took a number of pictures which you can see at our Facebook page here (you don't need a Facebook account to view them).
We had a friendly competition amongst the four classes and here are their totals:
We were also able to make 30 baskets from donations from Saint Joseph Regional Junior High School and faculty, former parents, and alums donated 32 baskets.
New this year too was a card in each basket with prayer that was composed by Mrs. Courter, Mrs. Lennan-Morf, and some students. The prayer is:
We are thankful not only for the abundance of food but also for the abundance of love which has brought us together.
