Operation Turkey

SPS is participating in Operation Turkey, sponsored by the Longwood chapter of the Phi Mu Alpha fraternity. Operation Turkey was started up several years ago to help provide a proper Thanksgiving meal to the less fortunate in the Farmville Area. Individuals, groups of people, and organizations sign up to provide that meals. Phi Mu Alpha corresponds with several charity organizations in the Farmville Area such as Steps and Crossroads. These organizations provide Phi Mu Alpha with a list of families with the number of adults and children.

Our goal is to collect at least $50.  The money will be used for gift certificates to a local grocery store.  We’ll be collecting money from SPS members and anyone else who wishes to participate.  Please bring your money to the next SPS meeting, Wednesday, November 7, 2007, at 4:00 PM, in Room G-12, New Science Center.  If you cannot make it to the meeting, you can give your contribution to Dr. Dunning in 208-B, New Science Center.

Suggested donation: $5.00 per person.

Thank you for participating with SPS in Operation Turkey!
