Donations needed for Family Scholar House Thanksgiving Meal Drive for ECTC students

Published on Oct 21, 2022

The community is invited to help Elizabethtown Community and Technical College (ECTC) students and their families celebrate Thanksgiving this year through the Family Scholar House Thanksgiving Meal Drive. Donations will be accepted through Nov. 8 at various locations throughout Hardin County.

“We are so proud of ECTC students, and we know encouragement from our community during the holidays will mean a lot to them and their families,” said Lynette Kennedy, Family Scholar House liaison who works directly with ECTC students in need. “We are thankful for our students’ commitment to their education, which benefits our entire community, and appreciate our community coming together to support our students.” 

Each meal will include: a box of stuffing, a box of macaroni and cheese, a jar of turkey gravy, a can of cranberry sauce, a can of green beans, a can of corn, a box of cake mix, a tub of frosting, a box of instant mashed potatoes, a can of yams, two Kool-Aid packets, a small bag of sugar, an aluminum pan, a roll of aluminum foil, and poultry seasoning. Reusable shopping bags are also needed. 

Monetary donations will be used to purchase a turkey, hen or ham for each meal.
