Winton Hills Academy students, faculty, staff, parents, and partners along with several local churches combined to collect over 1,000 food items to serve as sides to the 100 turkeys Citygate Church contributed. The drive concluded the Friday before Thanksgiving, and a dedicated group of volunteers sorted the food items and then packed a sack to go along with the turkeys to be distributed the following day. . St. Vincent de Paul brought an equal number of turkeys with sides, so a total of 200 community residents received what they needed to put a Thanksgiving meal on the table.
