This 13-year tradition will provide over 200 dinners for families in need-single-parent students who are trying to attend college, and provide for their families in these challenging economic times.
On Wednesday, November 25, 2009, SBCC's annual Thanksgiving Turkey Dinner Giveaway is taking place. To attend, please go to the Main Campus and to the Winslow Maxwell Overlook at the end of the main roadway from 9:30 am to 1:30 pm, on Wed. November 25.
Over 200 turkeys, pies and all the trimmings will be distributed to the parents who have 'reserved' their dinner and will be coming by with their children from 9:30 to 1:00 to pick up their goods.
Local merchants have also helped to make this event possible with free or deeply discounted groceries, such that the donated dollars go further.
Coordinated through the Foundation for SBCC, over $7,000 was donated this year to help purchase of the dinners. Extra funds raised will go toward childcare stipends and single parent scholarships throughout the year.
Donors include individuals throughout the Santa Barbara community as well as several members of the faculty and staff of SBCC.
