Record Staff Report
Students at Holy Trinity School, 423 Cherrywood Road, collected close to 4,000 canned and boxed food items as part of the school’s “Scare Out Hunger” initiative during the end of October.
The food items benefited those served by Catholic Charities of Louisville’s Sister Visitor Center and Common Earth garden program, St. Vincent de Paul food pantry and Dare to Care food bank.
The seventh-grade class delivered the items on Oct. 31 during their first mission service day.
