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!
