As a Key Club service project at Archbishop Rummel High School, students traveled recently to the Harry Tompson Center in New Orleans to help prepare food for the poor.
Located behind St. Joseph Church on Tulane Avenue, the St. Joseph Rebuild Center provides daily lunch for the 157 guests who are ministered to through a variety of programs each day at the center.
The Key Clubbers heard about the history of the center from former Archbishop Rummel principal and Harry Tompson Center volunteer David Hardin and then began preparing food for the day’s diners.
They prepared sandwiches, put various items in plastic bags and handed the homeless guests their day’s lunch. Working side by side with the students were current Archbishop Rummel principal Marc Milano and faculty member Denise Otillio.
Members of the Key Club hope to make the service project a regular activity of their organization.
