HIGH POINT, N.C., Nov. 20, 2020 – High Point University’s Professional Selling Club continued an annual tradition of delivering Thanksgiving meals to 75 families in the community on Nov. 19.
For the sixth year, students raised money to buy turkey dinners for families within the Boys and Girls Clubs of Greater High Point. Students helped load the organization’s bus with the meals.
“These meals are coming in at the best time given the coronavirus has left a lot of families without jobs and kids are learning remotely,” said Kenny Mack, vice president of operations for the Boys and Girls Clubs of Greater High Point. “This helps the parents figure out what to do about their Thanksgiving. This couldn’t have come at a better time, and our partnership with HPU has been great.”
This year, due to the pandemic, the need is greater than in years past.
“I feel so thankful to be a part of this and to have organized this year’s donation,” said Francesca Riehl, vice president of philanthropy for HPU’s Professional Selling Club. “We have a great selling club, and I’m happy that we were able to give back to a community that’s really special to me.”
