Alverno College students will donate 170 Thanksgiving dinners to Hunger Task Force

Nov. 16, 2012

Alverno College students will help feed those in need by donating 170 Thanksgiving dinners to Hunger Task Force. The dinners, which include a turkey, mashed potatoes, gravy, stuffing, green beans, cranberry sauce, rolls and pie, will feed nearly 700 people. The cost of the dinners is $55, and Alverno students used money from their personal meal plans to pay for the holiday dinners. The Athletics department and Food Services Inc. also contributed. This is the third year Alverno College students have donated Thanksgiving dinners. Last year a total of 118 dinners were given to local charities, feeding nearly 500 people.

“We are proud that our students came through for the community and gave even more than last year,” said Vicki Schreiber, assistant dean of students. “Thanks to their generous donations, 170 families who may not have celebrated Thanksgiving will now have dinner on the table.”
