Operation Turkey 2018 A Big Success

5 students stand in front of the car they loaded with holiday baskets

F. Donald Myers Education Center students stand in front of the car they loaded with holiday baskets.

Career and Technical Education (CTE) students showed thanks this holiday season by helping their community on Tuesday, November 20. Working with the Saratoga Wilton Kiwanis Club, the Key Club at the F. Donald Myers Education Center prepared over 80 holiday food baskets for local families in need in what they call “Operation Turkey”. 

Key Cub students, Kiwanis and staff volunteers set up tables and food stations to create Thanksgiving baskets, which were delivered by volunteers to families in need, seniors, shut-ins and area shelters. The effort is spearheaded by the Culinary Arts program. Exceptional Learners classes also played an active role.

Chef Nicholas Zwart said, “while this is my first year working on this project, our program has had a long tradition of supporting the community through this effort. It is particularly relevant since a number of the baskets will be going families of F. Donald Myers Education students themselves.”

CTE is happy to support this community service project as it helps students to understand the importance of giving back to their community.
