SOUTH BEND, Ind. (WNDU) - On Tuesday, students and staff at St. Joseph Grade School walked a couple blocks to St. Vincent de Paul Society to deliver food and toiletry items donated by families during the school’s Lenten Drive.

The event is in honor of Eric Henry, who passed away after a car accident when he was a student at Marian High School.

At the time of his death, Eric had made a Lenten promise to donate bags of clothing to St. Vincent de Paul Society.

Eric’s promise has since become a community wide effort to carry out his commitment.
