JHS Daily Bulletin
Friday November 18
Jesuit is joining forces with Lincoln HS this year to collect pumpkin pies for our neighbors experiencing food insecurity. Ask your family and friends to bring store bought or homemade pies to our Jesuit Pumpkin Pie Drop-off on 11/19, 9am-noon in the JHS parking lot. Last year Lincoln collected 900 (!!) pies on their campus, and has put out a challenge for Jesuit to try and beat them! Volunteers will deliver the pies to 13 local nonprofits in time for Thanksgiving, including the Hurtado Center and Blanchet House—we still need day-of volunteers. Sign up here.
