To Provide “Turkey Bowl” Thanksgiving Meals

It is time again for the Limestone University Student Social Work Organization’s popular Thanksgiving community service project known as the Turkey Bowl.

The food drive will provide local families with an entire Thanksgiving Day meal. The families are being identified and selected by counselors with the Cherokee County School District.

Limestone’s Social Work students pack boxes with all the items needed for a Thanksgiving feast. The students will pack the boxes and deliver them to families on Wednesday, Nov. 24.

If anyone would like to donate, the following items are needed: frozen turkeys, canned green beans, dressing/stuffing, gravy, instant potatoes, macaroni and cheese, rice, rolls, yams, cranberry sauce, and desserts. Donations will be accepted until Monday, Nov. 22, at 5 p.m. Items can be dropped off in the Curtis Administration Building Room 132 or contact Tamiah Clark at (864) 492-5119 or Beth Hyatt at (864) 492-8409.

Financial contributions are also being accepted as part of the Turkey Bowl. Checks should be made payable to Limestone University Student Social Work Organization.

“The students responsible for organizing this year’s Turkey Bowl are Student Social Work Organization President Tamiah Clark, Jackara Dewalt, Richard Abney, and Anna Eldreth,” noted Professor of Social Work/Field Coordinator Beth Hyatt. “Last year, we served 50 families and still donated to PeachCenter Ministries, which provides food and other support for those in need here in our community. We would like to provide even more meals and offer more assistance this year.”
