Flyers Aiding the Hungry. Student-inspired and organized effort to provide a holiday meal for 600 disadvantaged families in the Shreveport/Bossier Area. Supported through fundraisers, donations, and basket sales, Chairmen and Officers join the majority of the Loyola students in distributing baskets of food for families and a toy for each child that accompanies parents on this special distribution day. This year they are doing something different as they have gone around to the feeder schools and have all agreed to do a toy drive. FAiTh is possibly partnering with Sam's Club and Walmart to purchase the big food items for the baskets.
FAiTH was founded by Loyola graduate, Ashley Glassell Rockett, in 1990. Ashley returns each year to work on FAiTH Day. Since its beginning, FAiTH has served nearly 10,000 families during the Christmas season. In 2012, there will be 600 FAiTH Baskets distributed to families in need.
The next FAiTH. Day is December 10. (Usually held on the first Monday in December.) Officers will set up on December 9th to set up and the entire monday to prepare baskets for families.
There are 56 officers for FAiTH 2011.

During half time at the football games Canes will be hosting a fundraiser as students may win free canes for a year as they have to throw a ball from the stands into a jar on the 50 yard line. After each game you should head on over to Canes and grab something to eat as 15% of profits will go to FAiTH.
