November 12-16, 2018
Organized by students, faculty, and staff with the support of University Ministry, this annual, community-wide effort provides Thanksgiving baskets to local families and organizations ahead of the holidays. Each year, over 400 baskets are donated from various individuals and departments representing every corner of the Health Sciences campus and Loyola University Health System. Departments and groups of students collect items ranging from essential canned goods, vegetables, desserts, and decorations, to a grocery gift certificate to purchase a turkey. Baskets are distributed to organizations and individuals throughout Maywood, Bellwood, Cicero, and in Chicago's West and South sides.
Basket drop-off will take place November 12-14 in the SSOM Atrium.
If you, your student group or your department would like to contribute, please click here for the Thanksgiving Basket Flyer 2018 or see below for more details.
