Arkansas Tech University students wishing to help provide a Thanksgiving meal to those in need have through Friday to donate to the annual Helping Halls effort. The annual food collection initiative encourages those living in the residence halls to assist the Salvation Army in its efforts to provide holiday meals to those in the River Valley by donating a meal kit. Each meal kit features the staples of a traditional Thanksgiving meal including:

  • Turkey gravy
  • Canned sweet potatoes
  • Green beans
  • Corn
  • Cranberries
  • Pie filling
  • Stuffing mix
  • Boxed mashed potatoes mix
  • Marshmallows
  • Pie crust
Each meal kit costs approximately $12, and the kits will be collected Friday between 10 a.m. and noon at Nutt Hall. The kits will be paired with a turkey or ham collected by the Salvation Army and given to families. In all, the program has helped provide more than 2,000 meals to those in need.
