SNU students prepare holiday meal for PC West community
Students, faculty and staff of Southern Nazarene University prepared and served a traditional Thanksgiving meal for the Putnam City West High School community as a service project
Students, faculty and staff of Southern Nazarene University prepared and served a traditional Thanksgiving meal for the Putnam City West High School community as a service project Saturday afternoon.
David Bond, president of the university's Student Government Association, said his group partnered with the Alpha Lambda Delta sorority to plan and organize the holiday event. Bond estimated at least 100 college students and faculty participated in buying the food and preparing all the side dishes, pies and beverages for guests. He said 15 turkeys were purchased and were professionally smoked by Red Dirt B-B-Q.
Everyone in the neighborhoods surrounding Putnam City West was invited to attend the meal. The school was chosen for the service project because of the number of students living at or below the poverty level, event organizers said.
