Students at Montgomery Catholic’s St. Bede Campus raised nearly $500 and awareness for Food for the Poor, the third-largest international relief organization in the United States. Led by the St. Bede Student Council and chaired by sixth grader Audry Kim, students emptied their piggy banks and volunteered to do extra chores for their parents in order to raise the funds, which equals 9,940 meals for the poor.
