Northwestern Michigan College students distributed 150 Thanksgiving meals to families through their Food for Thought program.
It’s the ninth annual year for it, and the program focuses on teaching business major students how to professionally communicate to various businesses.
One of the ways students do so is by sending out letters to businesses and organizations.
In the letter, each student requested donations to help meet their goal of feeding 150 families.
“The students in the class learned a lot in them and how to properly communicate and how to properly resume all that stuff, proper business email. So that was super important to learn in the real world. When you have such a stressful time around the holidays and you can take some of the stress of their hands, it’s a great feeling,” Michael Wittman, the marketing team leader, said.
Local families, including 50 big brothers big sisters of Northwestern Michigan families, received all the ingredients for their Thanksgiving feast.
