Tue, October 26, 2010Help a family in need during the upcoming holiday season by providing all of the fixings for a Thanksgiving dinner. Our goal is to exceed last year’s total of 160 sponsored families! We need your help to reach this goal. Marywood Campus Ministry partners with United Neighborhood Centers for the THANKSGIVING ADOPT–A-FAMILY project, through which families receive a food basket filled with all of the fixings for their Thanksgiving meal. Knowing how financially difficult this past year has been, especially for economically disadvantaged families, your participation in this program is especially needed! Visit Campus Ministry’s website at http://www.marywood.edu/campmin/service/underprivileged.html to register to sponsor a family this year. Registration deadline is NOVEMBER 12th. -- Sister John Michele Southwick, IHM, NBCC, LPC Assistant Director of Campus Ministry Marywood University Scranton, PA 18509 570-348-6211 Ext. 2413
