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).
