UND Mortar Board Collecting Thanksgiving Donations

The UND Mortar Board is once again collecting donations to help feed those in need during the Thanksgiving holiday.

The UND Mortar Board is once again collecting donations to help feed those in need during the Thanksgiving holiday.

For the past 30 years the board has distributed a full turkey dinner for those in need.

They serve over 1100 families each year. Students say it's something they can do to give back to the community.

"The day of the turkey basket drive is an amazing experience being able to help people that would not get this king of a meal. It's just a great feeling," said Layne Egan, Mortar Board President.

If you would like to donate, you can drop off canned food or monetary donations at the UND Student involvement Center or send it to 2901 University Ave stop 8385.

To sign up to receive a turkey basket contact the Red River Community Action Center.
