During St. James Academy Annual Food Drive, a competition emerged among the six communities within the school. Students participated in a daily competition among the “houses” as well as the competition called “Can-Struction” where creative structures were built with cans and other food items. The much needed food will be available to individuals and families in need in Wyandotte County.
