Student Government is encouraging all to open their hearts and pantries this season and give to the less fortunate during the fast approaching holiday season. Friday, November 13th marked the beginning of our much anticipated Annual Golden Gobbler Thanksgiving Food Drive. This year we're celebrating our 24th year of the drive which will benefit the Glen Ellyn Food Pantry.
In 1997, under the leadership of the principal at that time, Jim Segredo (now president), we kicked off the very first Golden Gobbler Food Drive. Since then the event has become a welcomed tradition to students and their families encouraging students, homerooms and classes to bring in non-perishable food items for local food pantries. Additionally, some of the food collected is allocated for families that are "adopted" by Montini Catholic during the Christmas season.
