Food Sales Near $60,000
Mercy High School students have sold nearly $60,000 in frozen food to help fund its Negotiated Tuition Program. This individualized student tuition program is tailored to each family’s financial ability. Providing all girls the opportunity to go to the all-girls, college-bound school is part of the school’s mission, founded by the Sisters of Mercy. The school wishes to thank everyone who supported this effort.
The gigantic food pick up is scheduled for Tuesday, Nov. 7 from 3:15 p.m. to 5:30 p.m. at Franey Hall, 1501 South 48th Street. Teams of spirited students and faculty help coordinate the effort, often dressing in costumes to mirror the mood of the celebration. Throngs of supporters, family members and friends line up at multiple distribution stations to receive their packages. Red Wheel provides the frozen appetizers, entrees and desserts.
