THANKSGIVING FOOD BASKETS FOR THE NEEDY
On Wednesday, November 17, 2004, the Iona College Athletics Department presented 21 food baskets for local families in need. Each team was responsible for providing for one family and the Football team accommodated for three families.
The baskets, all of which incorporated the Thanksgiving theme, included items such as pie, stuffing, canned vegetables, and even Turkeys. In addition, many Student-Athletes attended the Thanksgiving Banquet held in Spellman Hall and enjoyed a hearty Thanksgiving meal. A proceed of each meal purchased benefited Hope Family Services, an organization that assists in meeting the needs of underprivileged families
This service project, which was organized in conjunction with Iona’s Week of the Peace Maker, proved to be a remarkable accomplishment for all involved.
