100 local families to enjoy Thanksgiving dinner thanks to ducks

One hundred local families will enjoy a Thanksgiving dinner this year courtesy of Catawba College’s 15th annual Duck Draw community service project.

Including this year, the project will have provided more than 1,900 families with Thanksgiving meals since its inception.

Members of the residence life staff began collecting $1 donations in September to sponsor ducks. On Tuesday, the ducks were floated in the fountain at Stanback Plaza and a number were randomly drawn by Dean of Students Jared Tice.

The sponsors of the ducks drawn received prizes from a list of more than 150 gift cards and items donated by local businesses.

The Duck Draw helps provide Thanksgiving dinners for families in the community. Dinners include a 10- to 12-pound turkey, baking pan, rice, cranberry sauce, green beans, corn, stuffing mix and brownie mix.
