Thanksgiving Dinner for UCO College Students!

Every year, the Chi Alpha Ministries at UCO in Edmond, OK, prepares and serves a full-blown Thanksgiving Dinner absolutely free for the college students! We have been honored to a part of this amazing opportunity for over 10 years and have watched this annual event grow from just a handful of students gathering in the XA house to experience Thanksgiving dinner to serving 300-400 students in the UCO Wellness Center on campus. A large percentage of the students have been international students who have never had our traditional American Thanksgiving meal, so it has been so much fun to serve them and watch them pile up their plates! Menu: Ham, Roast Turkey, Dressing, Mashed Potatoes, Gravy, Sweet Potato Casserole, Green Bean Casserole, Corn, Rolls, Pies and Desserts, and Lemonade! Special props to the XA Campus Pastors and my good friends, Charlie & Dona Bunn, who give their time and lives to being there and ministering to the students on the UCO campus in every imaginable way. What a great ministry to help and support!
