St. Mary’s Dominican High School’s annual Thanksgiving Basket Drive collected enough donations from homerooms, clubs, athletic teams and personnel to make 93 Thanksgiving baskets.
In conjunction with St. Rita Parish and Xavier University of Louisiana, the project provided 800 Thanksgiving meals for Dominican’s neighbors in the Gert Town community.
Dominican alumnae donated 12 Thanksgiving baskets to the annual collection. The Christian Leadership Council (CLC) organized the baskets and assisted with pick-up by Dominican Dads’ Club members. Leidenheimer Baking Company donated more than 100 bags of fresh rolls and bread crumbs. St. Rita Church and Elementary School and Mary Queen of Peace Church in Mandeville donated turkeys to complete the Thanksgiving baskets. CLC officers assisted with basket distribution from the Xavier University Community Outreach Center.
