On Nov. 20, 24 Keystone College students and staff members helped to set up the decorations, place settings and flowers at the Scranton Cultural Center. In addition, 12 students and staff volunteered to serve the Thanksgiving dinner.
I have been working at Keystone College for nearly 30 years, and I have never seen so many students and staff helping out in so many wonderful ways during the Thanksgiving preparation as I have witnessed this year, Keystone College Director of Community Outreach Maria Fanning said. All of the students and staff members pitched in whenever and wherever they were needed. Everyone worked cooperatively to make these service projects a great success.
