Every December SHE Sisters host a holiday food drive at their schools to share resources with families in need during the holiday season. In our first year, EPIC Academy SHE Sisters led the planning and worked with Julian High School SHE Sisters to raise a total of 880 cans to donate to the Morgan Park Food pantry. Our girls galvanized the student bodies at their respective schools to give from their hearts.
At EPIC, SHE Sisters designed the initiative as a home room competition, awarding the home room that collected the most cans a pizza party on behalf of the organization. At Julian, SHE Sisters awarded the student who gave the most with an Amazon gift card. Over the past two holiday seasons our girls have donated over 2000 canned goods to families in need and look forward to continuing their efforts in the future. Check out some photos from our last two SHE Chicago Holiday Food Drives.
