MORGANTOWN, W.Va. – For their fall service learning project, students in classes through the West Virginia University Department of Community Medicine donated Thanksgiving food items to Scott’s Run Settlement House.

The students are in the classes of Ruth Kershner, Ed.D., professor, and Toni Morris, instructor. Pi Beta Phi sorority also contributed to the effort. In all, the students donated more than 40 Thanksgiving meals and $700 in grocery store gift certificates.

“During the holiday season tough economic times are always more apparent,” Dr. Kershner said. “These students are to be commended for the incredible generosity and kindness they have shown.”

Scott’s Run Settlement House, founded in the 1920s, primarily serves in-need residents located in Monongalia County and provides more than 18 different programs.
