On Monday, November 21, 2005, the Iona College Athletics Department presented 22 food baskets for local families for Thanksgiving dinner. Each team was responsible for providing for one family and the Football team accommodated for four 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 Services held in La Penta Student Union and enjoyed a Blessing services by Student Minister Dan Potocki and a song by the gospel choir singing.
This service project, which was organized in conjunction with Iona’s Campus Ministries, was the second time we have been able to be apart of this wonderful event, which proved to be a remarkable accomplishment for all involved.
