Thanksgiving Dinner Volunteers Needed

Campus Dining will be hosting the annual Thanksgiving Dinner on Wednesday, November 20th at the Top of the UC. Approximately 1,700 students are expected to attend the dinner, so many extra hands will be needed in order to serve such a large number of guests.

Each year many members of UMW’s faculty and staff volunteer to help serve this and other holiday dinners, and they always have lots of fun! Volunteers can bring spouses, significant others, or older children to help serve, and they all get to enjoy the bountiful Thanksgiving feast for free!

Volunteers are asked to serve for one of the following shifts:

4:45 p.m. to 6 p.m.

5:45 p.m. to 7 p.m.

6:45 p.m. to 8 p.m.

Anyone interested in volunteering should contact Rose Benedict at or call 540-654-2169.
