While sharing is on-going throughout the year, Thanksgiving is a special time to share with our families and express our gratitude. Many do this over a nice Thanksgiving dinner, but there are many others for whom this exceeds their budget. The staff at the Silver Run School is aware of some of these families within the community. Mary Miskelly, chairperson of the Millville Woman’s Club (MWC) Civic Engagement and Outreach committee, coordinated the annual Thanksgiving Basket project. MWC members donated turkeys, stuffing, sweet potatoes, cranberries, desserts and much more. Thanksgiving dinners were then taken to Silver Run School for distribution to the families. Additional items were also collected and distributed to the Hope Center for its Thanksgiving dinner.
