Schulte Students Raise & Donate $1,000 to Local Food Pantry


Students at Schulte Elementary School are giving back to their community by donating a portion of the funds raised during their recent ‘Penny War’ to St. Sebastian Parish’s food pantry.

Members of the food pantry were invited to the school on Thursday, Feb. 15,  and were surprised with a check for $1,000!

The students selected the food pantry because of the impact it makes on the neighborhood around Schulte.  St. Sebastian's have provided 10 holiday gift baskets to local families in need each Thanksgiving, Christmas and Easter for the past three years and students wanted to make sure they knew how much that was appreciated.
