If your Thanksgiving is looking bleak this year, members of the Highline community are ready to help out.
The Phi Sigma chapter of Theta Kappa has partnered with the Women's Programs for their annual Thanksgiving Food Drive to bring holiday dinners to students in need this time of year.
The food drive will provide groceries for Thanksgiving dinner for students' families that need a little extra help through this holiday.
All donations for non-perishable foods are welcomed from Nov. 3-17.
Any foods normally found in a traditional Thanksgiving dinner are especially welcomed, items such as stuffing, instant mashed potatoes, pumpkin puree, and canned vegetables.
Food collection bins will be placed in the following locations: Building 6, first floor near the Women's Programs office; Building 8, second floor by the café; Building 25, second floor by the main entrance; Building 29, second floor by the faculty offices; and Building 30, first floor by the main entrance.
"We know how difficult the holidays can be, and being able to help out during the holiday seasons makes us very thankful," said Women's Programs Event Coordinator Maria Toloza.
Sign-ups to receive food donations are in the Women's Programs office in Building 6 on the first floor.
Each family that signs up will receive two bags of groceries a week before Thanksgiving.
