Will you invite two UCLA students to Thanksgiving dinner?
Every Thanksgiving UCLA’s bustling campus becomes quiet as students head home for the long weekend. While most will experience a holiday filled with family, friends and so much good food our international students and residents will be left behind to make the best of the time on their own. The break is too short for them to go home, so they stay in the dorms but lack dining hall services.
Can you make room for two more around your Thanksgiving table? International students are eager for first-hand experiences and by sharing this original American custom you will be showing a powerful kindness and the spirit of the holiday. Traditional or non-traditional, Thanksgiving as celebrated in your home will create lasting memories for students and role model the generosity of Bruins helping Bruins.
