This Thanksgiving season, we invite all our brothers and sisters across campus and in our parish to come together through the love of Christ to spread His love to those most in need in our community.
Beginning October 29, we will be accepting donations of non-perishable food and personal care items. We will be collecting donations through November 12th. The drop-off box is located in the lobby @ Newman.
Each of the 14 Christian student organizations on campus has been personally invited to join us in this mission and will be given the opportunity to collect donations at their perspective locations. Donations will support the following food pantries across Kentucky: God’s Pantry (Lexington), Hope Ministries of NKY (Florence), Operation Hands of Love (Stanton), and Jessamine County Food Pantry (Nicholasville).
Volunteers are also welcome for the sorting and delivery day, November 13th @ Newman.
THEN, we will celebrate together at a Friendsgiving dinner on Tuesday, November 16th!
