Join our Thanksgiving Homeroom Challenge and help put an end to hunger today!
Our charity partners include:
- Community FoodBank of New Jersey One million people in New Jersey face hunger every day. Nearly 300,000 of them are children. When they donâ€™t have enough food to eat, they can suffer direct and dramatic effects on their physical development and mental well being. Working together with volunteers, donors and our many partners, we fill the emptiness caused by hunger with Food, Help and Hope.
Helping is easy! Find the team below that you would like to support and click 'SHOP' to purchase the items you would like to donate. You will be emailed a tax receipt at the time of purchase. At the end of the drive all brand new goods ordered online will be shipped in bulk directly to NY Common Pantry. Online prices include shipping, handling and tax.
St. Peter's Prep along with Loyola, Fordham Prep, Fairfield Prep, Regis and Xavier are participating in a Thanksgiving food drive to raise awareness of hunger in our communities while filling local food banks and pantries with tens of thousands of pounds of much-needed provisions for needy families. This friendly but spirited competition will run October 16 - November 17, 2017.
The Challenge derives its name from St. Ignatius, who taught, "Love consists of sharing what one has and what one is with those one loves. Love ought to show itself in deeds more than in words." We are collectively putting those words into action. A key component of a Jesuit education is caring for the wider community which allows students to gain first-hand knowledge of local, national, and global issues. Through service to the community, the students prepare for the day when they will participate in their world as competent, concerned, and responsible members who are committed to social justice.
