Thanksgiving Pack and Play
With the help of the Tennessee State University students and staff, the community, and past and present members of the Alpha Beta Chapter of Sigma Gamma Rho Sorority, Inc., the Alpha Beta Chapter was able to supply 75 Thanksgiving baskets to families in need. We asked for money donations and collected food, baskets, basket wrap, ribbon, and created personalized notes to create the baskets. Each basket cost $12 to make. We also prepared a Thanksgiving meal for the Chapter and all of the volunteers to eat so we could fellowship and enjoy ourselves, after packing the baskets.
The items that were included in the basket were:
To make the packing go as quickly as possible, we formed an assembly line on both sides of the table and organized the food in sections. The beginning of the line handed baskets and the end of the assembly line wrapped the bags and put the ribbon and note on them. The event was very successful and people had an amazing time. We were able to help those in need and create relationships with organizations in the community. The baskets were delivered to Cumberland View affordable multi-family apartments, located in the North Nashville community.
