UPDATE 10/21/2013 5:20 PM

With just a week to plan, St. Marys High School put together a food drive to help those in need.

Monday morning they unloaded a trailer full of food for Pleasants County Neighbor Network.

Four members of the football team helped carry bag after bag into the pantry Monday morning.

The whole student body was out last Friday collecting cans, door to door and later at the football game.

Katie Campbell with Neighbor Network says they are extremely grateful for the help and it is much needed after the increase of people due to food stamp cuts and the recent government shutdown.

At the football game Friday an anonymous donor gave $200 towards the cause.

With just a week to plan, St. Marys High School put together a food drive to help those in need.

Four members of the football team helped carry bag after bag into the pantry Monday morning.

The whole student body was out last Friday collecting cans, door to door and also that night at the football game.

Journalism teacher Krista Yupp says the students really came together and the community support was wonderful.

She says it was a great teachable moment for the students, as well.

At the football game, an anonymous donor gave $200 towards the cause.

The Galaxy in St. Marys donated 60 flats of green beans, corn and peas.

A school wide community service project to help those in need.

St. Marys High School spent Friday morning collecting canned goods to fill a whole trailer full of food.

Last Thursday the students collected food at the powderpuff football game, but then decided to take it a step further.

After finding out the local food bank was running very low on supplies, they let the community know they'd be coming around house to house collecting bags of food people left out for them.

The food drive continues at the football game Friday, October 18.

Students are asking the community to bring canned food to the game to help them complete their goal and help those in need.
