The University of Scranton Campus Ministries' Center for Service & Social Justice sponsored its annual Thanksgiving Food Drive on Sunday November 22, dedicated to providing Scranton families with a traditional Thanksgiving Dinner. This year, students, faculty and staff filled 200 baskets, with a turkey, vegetables, pumpkin pie, and all other essentials needed to create a wonderful meal and gave them 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, over 100 students, staff and faculty volunteered to help package and personally distribute the baskets made possible through your financial contributions. This compassion and selflessness reflects the University;s Jesuit mission of service of faith and the promotion of justice.
