BSU helps families on Turkey Day

On Thanksgiving Day, the Black Student Union (BSU) took time out to do some volunteer work. "Helping for the Holidays" was the theme designed by the BSU for their holiday campaign.
Families get together and enjoy some delicious food on Thanksgiving Day. Most people enjoy the holidays at home with their families, while others don't have that same luxury of a hot meal, a warm bed and a loving family. The BSU and other school organizations spent their Thanksgiving at St. Benedict's to help out the people who need. Volunteers put in a great deal of hard work to prepare for the guests.
The people at St. Benedict's put all the volunteers into teams. Each team was assigned jobs to assist the workers and prepare for the families.
Tasks teams were given: greet the guests, prepare tables, serve the food, and provide drinks. Other duties were designated such as gathering up trays, picking up garbage and washing dishes. The teams were all dedicated to working hard and making sure all of the families had a festive time.
While eating and enjoying their food, the families also talked among themselves and  watched the football game while they ate.
Once done eating, they gave their trays to the volunteers so they could clean them.
As some families got ready to leave, the workers of St. Benedict's gave free coats and jackets so that the people could stay warm, due to it getting colder outside.
St. Benedict's made sure that the displaced people had a happy Thanksgiving and the BSU took something out of helping out the others on that day.
