Collecting food in Canton

St. Mary’s School students are collecting food again this Christmas season in conjunction with the Knights of Columbus Food for Families program. Last year, the fifth and sixth grade class collected 4,200 pounds of food – more than two tons – for the Canton Church and Community Program. The Knights of Columbus State Council gives $100 for every 1,000 pounds of food collected. The students in the above photo are shownwith the $400 check that will go to the CC&CP. From left in back are grand knight for the Knights of the Columbus Sarto Council John Taillon of Canton, Canton Church and Community Program director Connie Jenkins, St. Mary's School teacher Meg Trainor, and Dan Sweeney, former grand knight for the Knights of Columbus Sarto Council with, in front, St. Mary's School fifth and sixth graders.
