|Mortar Board turkey basket drive begins|
The 27th annual UND Mortar Board Turkey Drive is in full swing. Each Thanksgiving holiday season, Mortar Board raises money and collects donations to fill turkey baskets for families in need within the Greater Grand Forks area. Last year they provided over 600 baskets to families who would have otherwise gone without a traditional holiday feast. This year a goal has been set to hand out 700.
The annual project is made possible by generous donations through the community, and past support has been astonishing. Each basket costs approximately $40 and includes a turkey, potatoes, stuffing, cranberries, vegetables, pie crust and pie filling. Any donations would be greatly appreciated and would be of tremendous help. Checks are payable to: Mortar Board, Memorial Union Room 113, 2901 University Avenue Stop 8385, Grand Forks, ND 58202.
For more information, contact Alan Sumada at 701-610-1450 or at firstname.lastname@example.org. Most of us cannot imagine Thanksgiving dinner without all of the typical fixings. Together we can branch out to the community members in need to help give them a Thanksgiving to remember.
