Thanksgiving Holiday Outreach: #VillanovaHRD
Every year, Villanova University puts together its Holiday Outreach programs. The Thanksgiving Outreach program includes donations of boxes with ingredients and supplies for Thanksgiving meals and/or Shoprite gift cards so families can shop for their own ingredients. Villanova's goal for 2023 donations was to collect 290 meal boxes and 65 $50 gift cards.
The Villanova HRD office collected enough supplies to put together 2 baskets full of ingredients ready to go for Thanksgiving dinner. This is a great way to give back to the community and help families who do not have the means to purchase a large Thanksgiving meal. This holiday outreach program reminds us to be thankful for what we do have, to spread kindness to others, and to give back.
Ingredients collected per box:
2 jars of turkey gravy
2 jars of apple sauce
4 cans of seasonal vegetables
2 cans of cranberry sauce
3 or 5lb bag of potatoes (not canned)
2 boxes of stuffing
Pack of dinner rolls (placed on top)
15 lb frozen turkey
We hope everyone has a safe, restful, and joyful Thanksgiving holiday! Enjoy the community & pie and share what you are thankful for this year! Happy Thanksgiving everyone!
