Yesterday, St. Bernard Academy was honored to celebrate winning first place in the middle school division of News Channel 2's "Food 2 Families" 2017 food drive. SBA collected 4,000 food items to give to families in our community over the Thanksgiving holiday. Thanks to News Channel 2's Anne Holt and Nikki Burdine along with special guests from Second Harvest Food Bank, Cornerstone Financial and Tennessee Titans for making this celebration possible. Thanks also to all our wonderful SBA families for their generosity! Mr. Sabo was thrilled to receive the winning $500 check and then donate it back to Second Harvest Food Bank. SBA is truly inspired by mercy!
