ABILENE, TX -

Students at Abilene Christian University made Thanksgiving baskets for families less fortunate.

ACU gathered canned and baking goods in the Nelson Hall Dorm Lobby. Each basket included enough for a Thanksgiving dinner. Monetary and food donations were collected to provide the meal. Students were proud to have this opportunity to give back.

"We also want to be able to impact Abilene," said Service Action Leader Team Special Events Coordinator Stewart McGregor. "College students who are typically here for just four years and during that time we want to stay focused on helping out others and helping out where God's called us to help out here in Abilene."

Thanksgiving baskets will be delivered to families on Monday.
