Seton Hall Gives Thanks Campaign - Thanksgiving Food Baskets


Nov. 5, 2013

All 14 Seton Hall University varsity athletic teams will sponsor a local family's Thanksgiving dinner, providing the necessary meal staples and a few Seton Hall Athletics items. All items must be delivered in a laundry basket or other easy to carry container, and delivered at 7PM on Tuesday, November 19th to Walsh Gymnasium. A prayer service and blessing of the baskets will take place, and the team with the most spirited basket will win the title and additional items to donate to the family they are sponsoring.

Working in conjunction with DOVE, each team will sponsor a family's Thanksgiving meal and Seton Hall Athletics representatives will deliver the baskets preceding the holiday.
