St. Joseph’s College Shares Meals and Love


 
St. Joseph’s College once again partnered with Grandma’s Love to prepare Thanksgiving food baskets for families in need in Brooklyn. This year’s project aimed to provide 50 families across the borough with the staples they need to enjoy the holiday with their loved ones – and students went above and beyond that goal, helping 65 families. Sponsored by SJC Brooklyn’s Student Government Association and the Campus Activities Board, this program brought together student athletic teams, clubs and administrative offices to provide food items to include in baskets for eligible families.
