They collected more than 800 canned goods and other non-perishables and plan to donate them to the Food Bank of Santa Maria, according to English/AVID Teacher Elissa Gonzalez.

“As one of the CSF advisers, along with Anita Solomon, I was really amazed and appreciative of what our Saint's accomplished! Much thanks and gratitude go out to the SMHS staff and students.’’ Gonzalez added.

Students found the experience rewarding.
