2017 Golden Gobbler Service Project
Monday, November 6th is the kickoff for the 21st Annual Golden Gobbler Food Drive. Last year 3,400 non-perishable items were brought in by Montini Catholic students. The Broncos are responsible for donating close to 330,000 items since the program's inception in 1997 to food pantries throughout DuPage County.
In 1997, under the leadership of the Principal at that time, Jim Segredo, (now the school's President) Montini Catholic kicked off the Golden Gobbler. The Gobbler challenges students, homerooms and classes to bring in non-perishable food items for local food pantries including the Woodridge Food Pantry and York Township Food Pantry. Additionally, some of the food collected is allocated for families that are "adopted" by Montini Catholic during the Christmas season.
A two-week long series of classroom challenges and friendly homeroom competitions was conceptualized by the Student Government to compel all students to get involved. Classes receive spirit points for food donations throughout the drive.
Students can drop their canned food donations at their class table, which can be found outside the Student Activities office in the Art Hallway.
