Skutt Catholic Cares Drive

The Skutt Catholic Cares Drive kicks off Monday, January 30 and runs through Wednesday, February 15. The drive is sponsored by Future Business Leaders of America (FBLA) and Campus Ministry. We are collecting nonperishable food items to be donated to the Food Bank for the Heartland and diapers (Size 1) for the Christ Child Society of Omaha layette project. 


The drive is a student competition among HawkTimes and grades. Students should drop off donations in their HawkTimes (homerooms). Each food item is one point, except mac and cheese is double points! Diapers will earn one point per five diapers. The top HawkTimes win donuts and the top grades get a free dress day, if they donated! Thank you Skutt Catholic families for your support!
