In keeping with the spirit of the holiday season, Medgar Evers College (MEC) teamed up with a number of corporate and community sponsors to host a turkey giveaway for those in need. Wal-Mart, One Hundred Black Men, Inc. of New York, Bridge Street Development Corporation, Bridge Street AME Church, Ethylene Henderson Women’s Missionary Society and MEC collaborated for the effort. Dozens of students and residents in the surrounding community were supported during the event. Each received a meal complete with a turkey and all the trimmings.
During the holiday season, financial strain is often felt the most by families as others around them are able to participate in the festive time of year. MEC is proud to be able to support efforts that show students that we are here to support them with all of their needs.
