Our mission calls us to engage in “lives of purpose of and service”. The MICDS community lives out that mission every day, and especially during our annual Turkey Train effort. Each year for the past 13 years, the MICDS community rallies together to donate frozen turkeys, canned goods, and other food items to complement Thanksgiving meals at shelters and needy homes in the St. Louis area.
“This food drive means so much to those in need and your continued support is greatly appreciated. The students did a phenomenal job!” – Lenora Gooden, Vice President of Product Sourcing at St. Louis Area Foodbank.
The totals from your collection are:
Turkeys – 612 turkeys – 7,725 lbs
Food drive – 29 barrels – 2,694 lbs
The food collected will provide 8,505 meals to those in need.
Thank you for your support and have a wonderful holiday season.
