Binghamton Students Prep for Annual Community Dinner

Thanksgiving is right around the corner and students at Binghamton High School are busy prepping food in the kitchen.

The Patriots will be hosting their 20th Annual Community Thanksgiving dinner tomorrow from 11:30 a.m. to 2 p.m. in the main cafeteria. Students have been prepping more than 1,000 pounds of turkey, 800 pounds of stuffing and 300 pies for an estimated 1,500 people.

Coordinator of Special Events, Lawrence Kassan said, "I'm always impressed with the planning, the fundraising, the decorations, the different committees, but even the fact that they're willing to take a part of their Thanksgiving holiday and share it with those in our community that are in need."

Binghamton High School Senior, Bryan Conn said, "It's great to just help the community and everyone should have a meal with other people on Thanksgiving."

The meal is free for community members. There will be yellow First Student buses providing a continuous shuttle service to and from Binghamton High School. Shuttle 1 will start departing from Franklin Elementary School on Conklin Avenue at 11:00 a.m. and from North Shore Towers on Isbell Street at 11:15 a.m. Shuttle 2 will start departing from the Greater Binghamton Transportation Center on Chenango Street at 11:00 a.m. and the First Ward Senior Citizen Center on Clinton Street at 11:15 a.m. After 1:30 p.m. buses will leave the high school for returns only.
