Community Christmas Day Breakfast

The annual Community Christmas Day Breakfast is The University of Scranton's gift to the community.  Held on Christmas morning in the Fresh Food Company, 3rd floor DeNaples, the breakfast is open to all, especially those who are alone on Christmas and want to spend the morning with some joyful companionship.  The breakfast is FREE and there is no need for advanced reservations.  

Doors open to the public at 8am on the Mulberry St side and breakfast will be served until 10:30am.  Feel free to take pictures with Santa outside with your camera! Parking is available in the University parking pavillion located at Monroe Ave and Mulberry St.

How can I volunteer for this event?

All of our Christmas Breakfast staff consist of current University of Scranton employees and their families, who dedicate themselves to those in need during the holiday season.  Registration for volunteers will open internally on Royal Sync after Thanksgiving.  If you are looking for places to volunteer for the holidays and are NOT a University of Scranton employee, please refer to our Current Volunteer Opportunities page for local organizations needing assistance.

Donations

The breakfast is coordinated by Campus Ministries' Center for Service & Social Justice and sponsored by Aramark food service. Donations of giveaways are accepted from Nov 1-Dec 25.  We can always use coats, jackets, sweatshirts, sneakers and winter boots in good condition, as well new toiletry samples. 

In 2016, The University's 110 employee and family volunteers served 559 guests from the Scranton Community.
