GMercyU Thanksgiving Outreach
GMercyU students and Sigma Phi Sigma member Albert Rementer and Stacy Fry helped collect and deliver the baskets to the Gesu School.

The Gwynedd Mercy University community donated Thanksgiving baskets to 19 families chosen by the Gesu School in Philadelphia.

The baskets, which included all of the fixings for a Thanksgiving meal (and then some!) were delivered by Campus Ministry and Sigma Phi Sigma on Monday afternoon. More than 200 people will benefit from the generosity of the University community.

The Gesu School serves some of the poorest ZIP codes in the Philadelphia region, and one out of three families has an income below the Federal Poverty Level. The school identified families in need of a little extra help this holiday season, and Campus Ministry matched those families with a participating department on campus.

Heartfelt thanks to everyone on campus who contributed to the baskets and their safe delivery. Happy Thanksgiving!
