(KNZA)--More than a dozen Doniphan County families will have Thanksgiving dinner courtesy of the efforts of employees at Highland Community College.

According to a news release from the college, the employees donated enough food to provide meals to 15 families in need.

The effort was spearheaded on campus by a group of employees called The Hamper Committee which includes, Theresa Grossman, Laura Young, Shelley Smith, Pamela Fulbright, Amy Foley, and Kristin Woodruff.

Young, a business and economics instructor at Highland, said in the release that the effort was an increase over the basket numbers from last year, and will also help feed Highland students staying on campus during the holiday break.

Each basket includes enough food to feed 8 -10 people and is meant to be a complete Thanksgiving meal for each family.

 The committee coordinated the effort with a larger project by the Doniphan County Council on Aging and Transportation and for delivery of the meals.
