The students loaded canned goods into trucks and delivered them to the Catholic Charities food pantry. To encourage their participation in the canned-food drive, some faculty and staff members agreed to dye their hair purple and wear a toupee for a week. This morning,  two Neumann faculty members made  good on their challenges. Students cheered as  Mrs. Marrie McLaughlin, Assistant Principal appeared with purple hair and  Mr. David Burns, Dean of Students , received a toupee that he will wear all week.
