Binghamton High School Students Feed Hundreds

Binghamton High School students, staff members and other volunteers provided Thanksgiving dinners for an estimated 1,300 people today.  Led by the school’s National Honor Society, volunteers helped prepare, seat and serve community members who visited the school’s cafeteria between 11:30 AM and 2 PM.

Binghamton High School has hosted this project for a number of years.  For the students it is a way to give back to their home town.  The meal has all the trimmings of a traditional Thanksgiving Day dinner including apple and pumpkin pies for dessert.

The meal was established to provide a place for people of all means to go and enjoy a Thanksgiving dinner.  There are no stipulations.  People of all income levels are welcome.  Some have no family and no place to go on Thanksgiving. Some have family but who live out of the area.  Still others want to enjoy dinner with other community members and friends in a comfortable and pleasant setting.  Meals are served in the high school cafeteria.

Shuttle busses provided transportation from various locations around Binghamton.  People are welcome to attend from all over the area.  Students opened doors and greeted all who came.  In all several hundred students, staff and volunteers gave up a large portion of their holiday to make it a wonderful day for many others.
