Please help us feed families for Thanksgiving!   

2014 marks the 11th year we will sponsor the annual Thanksgiving Duck Draw project. During the past 10 years, we have provided over 1480 families with Thanksgiving meals. This year, we hope to feed 1630 families!

Again this year, we will be collecting $1 donations to sponsor a duck that will be floated in a pool in the Stanback Plaza on November 18, 2014. At that time, we will draw a number of ducks randomly and the person sponsoring that duck will receive a prize. Prizes will include gift certificates from local restaurants and other donated gifts. As you will remember, our local merchants have been extremely generous and have consistently provided more than 150 prizes each year.

Resident Assistants will be visiting offices, residence halls and community members to collect donations. There will also be a table set up inside the Cannon Student Center at several lunch times during the next few weeks, and you may also stop by the Student Affairs Office to sponsor a duck.  Please consider sponsoring a duck and help us make this year's Thanksgiving dinner drive as successful as each of the previous years .  

You will also see the Residence Life staff selling items at all home football games. Last year’s combined fundraising efforts raised enough money to provide Thanksgiving dinners for approximately 180 local families. The dinners consisted of a 10-12 lb turkey, baking pan, rice, cranberry sauce, green beans, corn, stuffing mix and box of brownie mix.  We worked with local school agencies to find families that need assistance during the holiday.      

If you have any questions, want to sponsor a duck or know of a family that may be in need of assistance for a meal, please contact Student Affairs at ext. 4410.
