Xavier Community Donates Over Half-Million Cans

November 16, 2022

Giving back to the community is a way of life for students at Xavier
College Preparatory. In fact, each year students give over 30,000 hours doing volunteer
work and community service as part of Xavier’s Christian Service Program. Many
activities are designed by students where they see a need to fulfill.

Xavier’s National Honor Society (NHS) started its Canned Food Drive to benefit St.
Vincent de Paul in the 1990’s. The initial goal was 10,000 cans. Each year Xavier breaks
the record of food collected.

This year the Xavier community broke another record and donated 603,499 cans for St.
Vincent de Paul! Together, we raised more than $60,000 in cash donations alone.

When asked why she was involved, Senior and NHS President, Bryn Murphy said, “I’ve
always been passionate about fundraising and St. Vincent de Paul. It was great to be
involved with my fellow students as well as my own family. Everyone came together to
raise funds and contribute canned goods for such a worthy cause.
