Thank you for making the Jesuit Alumni Food Drive a success! There were many ways to get involved in this year's event – gift card delivery, love letter writing, and hygiene kit donation/packaging – and our alumni community showed up.
With help from the Safeway Foundation, we distributed 3,000 Safeway gift cards. Alumni delivered 300 of those cards with accompanying love letters to families in need. Thank you to Conifer Foods for their donations of nonperishables that helped fill many pantries this winter. As a new component to the Alumni Food Drive this year, we put together 114 hygiene kits for those in our community facing housing insecurity.
Though it looked a bit different this year, the Alumni Food Drive is always a wonderful opportunity to reconnect with former classmates while living out the Jesuit mission to serve our greater community. This year's event was particularly special for many alumni who came out to thank Principal Paul Hogan for his 27 years of service at Jesuit and wish him well on his next chapter.
Thank you, alumni, for continuing to live out the Jesuit mission and touch the world with goodness and light!
