Regent Student Bar Association Serves Thanksgiving Meal to Homeless

Four turkeys, three chickens, one ham and over two hundred pounds of stuffing, mashed potatoes, pumpkin pies, and thanksgiving treats; that’s all it takes to bring a bit of holiday cheer to a large group of men, women and children from a local homeless shelter.

Last week, between forty and fifty students at Regent Law served the Student Bar Association’s (SBA) annual Thanksgiving meal to guests from the Union Mission in Norfolk. To make it a special night, the students provided not only a delicious meal from scratch, but also live music, homemade decorations, and activities for the kids.

Leandra Rayford, President of the SBA shared her favorite moment from the night: “The guests had all gotten into the room and volunteers were beginning to serve with excitement in their eyes as they greeted. Some were in line for drinks and others were in line for food. [A student] went to welcome the guests and started to pray, and I saw men pull their hats off and pray along. Sharing our food, our blessings, and our gifts really does show the love of God every year... I thank God that SBA has the resources to share and to pull the students together each year to volunteer with this event.”

Rayford shares more about the night and the SBA on her blog here.
