OLCHS students and staff participated in the annual Student Council Thanksgiving food drive. Cans, paper goods and over $1,750 in cash/gift cards were collected on November 21. 
 
Participating teachers were DeMatteo, Hennelly, Jepsen, Kallenborn, Kolimas, La Spina, Meyers, Strelow, Vazzana, Watson and Wirtz. Numerous district offices also donated items. 
 
The winner of Student Council's handmade "Turkey Chalice" award was Mr. Eric Kallenborn, Fine Arts Department Chairperson. In addition to boxes of canned goods, his three classes alone raised $1,200! Kallenborn also earned the prize in 2021.
 
A very honorable mention goes to Mrs. Jennifer Jepsen, English teacher, whose classes raised $372.25 and donated additional boxes of cans. 
 
All donations were given to local food pantries at Faith Lutheran Church in Oak Lawn and Our Savior's Lutheran Church in Burbank.
