MCCC Groups Give Generously To Those in Need at Thanksgiving

11/23/11


West Windsor, N.J. - The spirit of giving overflowed at Mercer County Community College this Thanksgiving season. The MCCC chapter of the American Association of Women in Community Colleges (AAWCC), the Student Government Association (SGA) and Upward Bound Parents Association spearheaded several outreach efforts to benefit those in need, including MCCC students and members of the community.

A food drive by AAWCC and SGA provided 10 Thanksgiving meals that included non-perishable food items and $25 gift certificates to redeem turkeys to MCCC students. Additional food items were donated to patrons of HomeFront.

The Upward Bound Parent Association on the Kerney Campus invited community members to join in its food drive to provide Thanksgiving baskets to needy families throughout Mercer County. The generosity of participants made it possible to serve 53 families this year, surpassing last year's total of 42.
