At McWhirter Elementary, 80% of families on the free lunch program.  Without our support, families are put in the position of deciding between rent/gas/utilities and celebrating Thanksgiving with a traditional meal. St Thomas has partnered with McWhirter for the last 7 years to provide 50+ full Thaksgiving bags.
