BLSA Thanksgiving Food Drive ends Friday

Thursday, November 17, 2011

LAWRENCE – The Black Law Students Association at the University of Kansas School of Law is hosting its 21st annual Thanksgiving Food Drive. The deadline for contributions is Friday, Nov. 18.

BLSA is soliciting contributions (financial and edible) from law school faculty, students and staff to provide turkeys and all the trimmings for Lawrence residents in need. The group needs food that is typical of Thanksgiving dinner, such as vegetables, mashed potatoes, gravy mixes, boxed dessert mixes, stuffing mixes, etc.

The food drive has become a tradition in which the entire KU Law community participates. It has become a fierce competition among the first-year small sections. There is also a 2L vs. 3L competition this year. The competition began Nov. 9 and ends at 5 p.m. Friday, Nov. 18.

If you have any questions or would like to make contributions, please email tonda@ku.edu.
