Help 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 170 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 to register to sponsor a family this year.  Registration deadline is NOVEMBER 11th.  Please send your form to the Campus Ministry Office, Swartz Center.

Individuals and groups are needed to sponsor families or make a monetary donation; Additional volunteers are needed to prepare food baskets and assist with delivering to families.

HOLD THE DATE:  All food baskets are scheduled to be delivered to families sponsored by Marywood University helping groups on Saturday, November 19th between 11AM-2PM.  If you can help – email   or   VOLUNTEERS NEEDED
