November 18-22, 2019
Organized by students, faculty, and staff with the support of HSC 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 18-20 in the Cuneo Center Atrium.
Student organizations or groups, departments, offices, and families are encouraged to contribute.
Please see the Thanksgiving Basket Drive 2019 for further information regarding basket contrinutions.
