Students, staff, faculty, alumni/ae and family members all made contributions for a Thanksgiving Dinner held at Hope Lodge last night, which is operated by the American Cancer Society, our neighbor here on the Hill. They served approximately 50 people last night and at least 12 of those individuals were patients and their loved ones or support person.
A note of gratitude from Polly Bush, Admissions Coordinator and Student Services Representative:
The outpouring of generosity from all of you meant so much too so many people. Please read the note below that was sent to us this morning from Kelly Conlan who is a Coordinator at Hope Lodge.
A thank you note from Kelly Conlan, a coordinator at Hope Lodge:
Thank you everyone-the guests were raving this morning to me about the meal. Many of them said they came back later on and were able to enjoy a late meal. This morning I saw many people who had a slice of pie next to their cereal bowls
Donations for food purchases were kindly given by local supermarket chains Tops ($10) and Wegmans ($50).
Join us as we work to help Foodlink reach their goal of raising $40,000 (the equivalent of more than 2,500 turkeys) for families and individuals in Rochester who do not have access to adequate nutrition.
The "turkey basket" where donations are kept
You can donate a turkey by stopping by the Admissions Office and putting a check or cash in the turkey basket on the desk. Or, simply use your smartphone to scan one of the Turkey Drive posters around school to make a donation on line. It’s fast and easy! Once you’ve donated a turkey, please take a paper turkey from the envelope by Polly’s door, write your name or a prayer on it, and stick it on the wall near the door.
Those who donate can leave a memorial or prayer on the walls of Strong Hall, first floor
Let’s see if we can get 50 turkeys by Friday, November 9th! A Foodlink hunger workshop will be held on CRCDS campus on Tuesday, November 6th from 1:00-2:00 p.m. in Room 117. Please contact Nancy Raca for more information at email@example.com.
This new student group on campus is lead by students Sara Campbell and Brae Adams. The group was developed to support the LGBT, inter sex and questioning members of the CRCDS community. If you have any questions about the Open and Affirming Student Caucus, or would like to get involved in their activities, please contact Brae Adams at firstname.lastname@example.org.
