Turkey and pie leftovers!

On Nov. 20, 2017 over 25 law students came together to make the lives of homeless families a bit better- they prepared, bought, delivered and served Thanksgiving Dinner to the residents of the Family Shelter and St. Lawrence Place.  This has been a tradition led by the Pro Bono Program for over 15 years but could not happen without the support of student organizations.  BLSA, the Honor Council, the SBA and WIL were real troopers in this effort and judging from the smiles it was a total success.

enjoy these photos of the team in action!  Law student talents include making amazing mac and cheese ( thanks Buster) the pie team ( Maura and Patty), Grant and Sarah made sure things were hot, especially the gravy,  Dean Cherry, Ivey and Chelsea can portion out food with best and Brianna on bread was not to be messed with. Lauren made sure everyone got cranberry sauce ( even if they don’t like it) Simone documented the event in photos, Tony was on garbage duty! Chris and Joseph kept the cups of juice and tea flowing.  Lashawnda was a superb ringleader and the serving team ( too many to mention by name, I know I will forget someone) made our guests feel welcome and kept the plates moving and this was not easy in such a tight space! Clean up was a breeze and the leftovers will be a welcome reminder of this great event.  Thanks for the Thanksgiving!   Pam
