25 Providence Catholic students help out at Northern Illinois Food Bank

Providence Catholic High School students were in a giving mood all throughout the holiday season and that has continued into 2021.

On Saturday, 25 students spent their day with the Northern Illinois Food Bank Pop-Up Market, helping to serve over 1,000 families.

One of those students was senior Kate Davison, who said her family has been fortunate throughout the last year, and felt grateful that she was able to help those who were struggling.

Davison said he has been involved in other food drives before, like Feed My Starving Children, and said that she enjoyed being able to see the immediate impact and who she was helping at this food drive.

She and her classmates were separated into groups and sorted out the food to prepare it for each family it would go to.

While there was not much interaction among herself and those picking up the food, she said people were grateful for what she and her classmates were doing.

“It just felt really good to be a part of that,” she said. “We could see how we were helping people.”
