Northwestern football team helps prep Thanksgiving dinners for needy

November 21, 2012 

The Northwestern High School football team’s players and coaches spent two hours after practice Tuesday evening to assist the Applied Technology Center’s Culinary Arts program by picking the meat from 40 turkeys.

The ATC students, under the direction of their teacher Suzanne Young, have spent the past several days preparing enough food to feed Thanksgiving dinners to 3,000 needy individuals within our community and surrounding area. Young was asked to cook the dinners by the Rev. Ronal King, who runs Feed The Hungry Ministries in Rock Hill.

“This is quite a commitment by the team; especially, since they are prepping to play Bluffton this Friday night,” said Don Gillman, ATC principal.
