University Hospital Thanksgiving Outreach Thursday November 28
University Hospital Thanksgiving Outreach is an annual service project of Unity Church of San Antonio. We make the holidays brighter on the Pediatric Unit of University Hospital, and have done so for more than 20 years. UCSA provides a Thanksgiving Dinner every year to the patients, their families, and the staff on Thanksgiving Day, thanks to the dedication of Community Connections Team member Mary Ibarra.

Often when a family member is in the hospital on a holiday, normal family traditions can’t be observed, causing sadness or stress for families. We give a holiday experience to families who might not otherwise have one. We receive a blessing in return when providing this meal as we see appreciation in the receivers’ eyes.
We would like sixteen volunteers to serve food on Thanksgiving Day in the hospital. More volunteers are needed this year than in past years because the hospital wing has expanded. The hospital requests that volunteers be fourteen years of age or over due to hospital policy, and flu season. Contact us if you have questions!
