How do you make a canned food drive interesting? Start with a theme and make sure all of the canned goods are green vegetables.
Students from All Saints in St. Peters launched ‘Go Green for St. Pat’s’ to collect the vegetables to donate to St. Patrick Center. The drive brought in 1,100 cans – enough to create a huge shamrock!
