    Students and members of The University of Scranton community gathered to pack food baskets for area families in need as part of its annual Thanksgiving Food Drive organized by the University’s Center for Service and Social Justice. The food baskets included turkeys as well as other food items needed to prepare a traditional Thanksgiving dinner.

    More than 40 students and staff members volunteered at the Friends of the Poor warehouse in South Scranton on Nov. 21 to prepare and distribute the food baskets to local families.

    Monetary contributions for the food items were made possible by employees of The University of Scranton.

    WNEP TV covered this year’s annual Thanksgiving Food Drive in a news story.
