VSU Nursing Students provide Thanksgiving Dinner to Haven

Valdosta State University College of Nursing students will provide Thanksgiving dinner to residents of The Haven on Thanksgiving Day. The nursing students are purchasing the food for preparation on Thanksgiving morning.

"I believe that nursing students have to have an extra big heart for giving," said Christina Wetherington, a junior in the nursing program and coordinator of the dinner. "That's why it is easy to get them involved in activities that help other people."

The Haven is an undisclosed location in Valdosta that cares for victims of domestic violence. Anyone interested in donating to the VSU student effort may contact Wetherington at cbwether@valdosta.edu .
