Over 40 of our School of Rhetoric students braved the cold, rainy weather on Saturday, October 13, to serve together at the Lubbock Dream Center. We decorated bags for the over 350 Thanksgiving meals that will be delivered to families in the surrounding neighborhood, worked in the clothing closet and food pantry. Then, we divided into teams and walked the neighborhood picking up trash, praying with people, and registering them for the Thanksgiving meals the Dream Center will be giving out.
