Duchesne Joins Catholic Charities in Food and Supplies Drive

Duchesne Academy is joining Catholic Charities of Omaha to collect food and other household supplies for people in need. Students and staff have placed collection bins at the entrance near the Performing Arts Center where students enter the building each day. 
 
Catholic Charities made the urgent request this month as demand for help surged as the economy continues to struggle during the COVID-19 pandemic.
