Through the service program at Canisius High School students learn that their experiences of service to others are as valuable for their growth as their time in the classroom. These experiences have often included activities such as organizing materials at the Teacher’s Desk or serving in a soup kitchen at St. Luke’s Mission of Mercy. The COVID-19 pandemic though has limited these types of opportunities.
Much as the pandemic has not stopped the need of people who rely on St. Luke's for food and supplies, it does not stop the Canisius commitment to being "Men and Women for Others." The Canisius Campus Ministry department is now finding new ways to be of service to those on the margins of society.
Canisius will host a food drive on Saturday, May 30, 9:00-11:00am. All are welcome to drop off non-perishable food or paper products at the high school -- 1180 Delaware Avenue. The donations will be distributed to those in need at St. Luke's.
