Local Turkey Take-Out program receives canned goods and cash from online university

Columbia Southern University donated more than 2,400 canned goods to the Turkey Take-Out program in Foley, Ala.

As part of their continued effort to help the community, Columbia Southern University (CSU) employees recently donated more than 2,400 canned goods and $289 to the annual Turkey Take-Out food drive.

“This wonderful effort by our staff and faculty will help 1,200 people in our area enjoy a blessed Thanksgiving,” said CSU Director of Employee Activities Vicki Barnes.

Turkey Take-Out was established to provide families with a meal on Thanksgiving Day as well as non-perishable food items to fill their pantries. Turkey Take-Out is a community partnership of businesses, churches and organizations with Foley Elementary School that began after local pastoral leaders and citizens learned of the severe need of many of the elementary school’s students.
