Fr James Clement KC Council 6389 from St. Amant with help from their Ladies Auxiliary has completed another Christmas basket food drive to provide families in need a good Christmas dinner.

They’ve collected food from five area schools receiving over 7700 pounds of canned and dry goods. With donations and allocated funds, they were able to provide 120 baskets this past Christmas. The baskets included items such as ham, dressing, yams and many other fixings to make a meal to feed any size family. The amount of canned and dry goods received was so extensive we were able to donate approximately 2000 pounds to Our Lady of the Holy Rosary food pantry.
