In an effort to give back to the community, the University of Maine at Farmington Mitchell Scholars Club donated turkeys, stuffing and all the fixings for a Thanksgiving meal to the Western Maine Homeless Outreach shelter, as reported by the Sun Journal. The club’s goal was to raise $100 for the dinner in a short period of time, and students were pleased when scholars, students, faculty and UMF President Kathryn Foster pitched in to raise nearly $200. “It feels good to give,” said Michaela Carney, co-chairman of the UMF student club and a junior from Richmond.
