Sponsor-A-Family Thanksgiving Baskets Oxfam Hunger Banquet Ten days before Thanksgiving, students will host a Hunger Banquet. Attendees’“fate” is drawn at the door — high-income, middle-income or low-income. The meals served will reflect your income level. Be part of this nationwide, campus activity to discuss the issue of hunger in our world. For more information, contact the Office of Civic Engagement at 301.687.4210.

Through the annual Sponsor-A-Family, academic and administrative departments, student groups or individuals can help make a difference in a family’s life in Western Maryland by providing a Thanksgiving food basket to a family in need. Since its beginning, the Sponsor-A-Family has provided Thanksgiving baskets for over 250 families in Western Maryland. If you or your group is interested in sponsoring a family for the Thanksgiving holiday or just making a donation, drop off your non-perishable food items at the Office of Civic Engagement. All baskets will be delivered on the Monday and Tuesday before Thanksgiving.
