Casseroles for St. John’s Hospice – Collected 3rd Monday of every Month


Help Bring the Holidays H.O.M.E. by donating Thanksgiving Turkey Baskets!

Your donation will enable formerly homeless individuals and low-income families within the Project HOME community to have a hearty holiday meal!  Please be sure to include the following in your family Thanksgiving Baskets:

  • 15 pound frozen Turkey (wrapped or sealed in plastic)
  • 4 cans of various seasonal vegetables
  • 2 boxes of stuffing mix
  • 5-pound bag of potatoes
  • 2 cans of cranberry sauce
  • 2 jars of applesauce
  • 1 jar of gravy
  • dinner rolls
  • 1 non-frozen pie

 ALSO – Project H.O.M.E. expressed a need for additional frozen turkeys – no basket required!

If you have any questions or are interested in participating in Project H.O.M.E.’s Turkey Basket Drive, please email Pat Gregg at pgregg@sju.edu with your departmental or individual name and the number of baskets and/or frozen turkeys you will be donating.  Baskets will be collected on Tuesday, November 21st between 8:30am and 10:00am at the Hagan Arena.

Packing the Thanksgiving Dinners in a plastic tote/bin with a lid makes transporting them much easier.


Annual SJU Giving Trees and Holiday Social Event

HOW DOES IT WORK?

Ornaments listing items from the wish lists of local families will be hung on each Giving Tree.  We invite you to take an ornament and return the unwrapped gift with the ornament attached to it by Friday December 15, 2017.  Gifts may be dropped off at the Post Learning Commons/Drexel Library front desk.  The gifts will then be presented to the families in time for their celebrations.

Save the date! The ASC will host a gathering to kick off the Holiday Giving Tree on Thursday November 30th from 3-5 PM in the Wolfington Welcome Center (5800 City Avenue). Please join us for cookies and hot chocolate to begin the holiday season!  Ornaments will be placed on the Giving Trees after the Giving Tree Social.
