St. Angela Merici Students Knock Down Hunger

WHITE OAK (KDKA) — People in the Pittsburgh region are especially generous during the holiday season. Gifts and food for the needy come in one after another, like dominoes.

Students at a school in White Oak carried that analogy one step further, as Dave Crawley discovered in KD Country.

Students at St. Angela Merici in White Oak collected 450 boxes of cereal for Intersection Social Services of McKeesport. But before they handed them over, they had a little fun. Dominoes anyone?

The students lined up the cereal boxes throughout their hallways, before giving the first in line a push.

Student Council President Teddy Klasnick says the concept is “knock down hunger.”

Sisters Bonnie and Barbara Mary of Intersection appreciate the donation.

St. Angela’s has been very supportive over the years. The school has given lots of different kinds of food for us, food drives and support,” Sr. Bonnie said. “But always at Thanksgiving, they come up with something unusual.”

St. Angela’s generosity did not stop with cereal boxes. The school administrator, Reverend Stephen Chervenak, presented Dave Crowley with a $500 donation to the KDKA-TV Turkey Fund.

It’s another great example of people helping their neighbors this holiday season.

To make a donation to the KDKA-TV Turkey Fund, you can drop your donation off at any PNC Bank Branch. PNC will match donations of $50 or more.

Donate to the KDKA-TV Turkey Fund.
