Newman students had their work cut out for them as they picked up thousands of food items Wednesday during their 18th annual food drive. Students at St. Andrew gathered 2,474 items. Each class was motivated by a promise of donuts and juice for the winner. Because of the excellent job, all classes were given the treat. Food was collected from all public and Catholic schools in Sterling and Rock Falls, and at St. Anne and St. Mary Catholic Schools in Dixon.The donations helped to fill local pantries.
