    Thanksgiving Feed a Family Program

    October 29, 2018

    Sunday, Nov. 18 @ Valley View Housing Development, South Scranton - register here! 

    Campus Ministries' Center for Service & Social Justice is sponsoring our annual Thanksgiving Feed a Family Program, dedicated to providing Scranton families with a traditional Thanksgiving Dinner. This year, our goal is to fill 200 baskets, with a turkey, vegetables, pie, and all other essentials needed to create a wonderful meal. We will be distributing food bags directly to those in need at Valley View Housing Development in South Scranton.

    The past success of the Thanksgiving Food Drive has been the result of the University community's generosity. On the Sunday before Thanksgiving, students, staff and faculty will be needed to help package and personally distribute the baskets made possible through your financial contributions. This compassion and selflessness reflect our Jesuit mission of service of faith and the promotion of justice.

    Volunteers are needed for:

    Packing food into bags for distribution:
    Shift 1 - 11 a.m. -12 p.m. Packing bags with food for families.

    Distribution of food:
    Shift 2 - 12 p.m. -1:30 p.m. Packed bags will be distributed to families. Volunteers will assist families with carrying bag to their apartments, helping clean up event.
