DICKINSON, N.D. – The Blue Hawk men's and women's basketball teams were out in the community on Thanksgiving for the Dickinson Community Thanksgiving Dinner.
The dinner was held at the Student Center on the campus of Dickinson State from 11:30 a.m. to 1 p.m. The Blue Hawks worked during the morning to package meals for the dinner.
The Blue Hawks packaged 500 meals that would help families from the Dickinson community enjoy a happy Thanksgiving.
An early estimation for this year's event expected 200 volunteers and roughly 1,000 local residents to attend the free dinner, as well as 400 meals that will be delivered to families within the community.
The Blue Hawks will be back in action on the court Friday (Nov. 28) for the Sam Milanovich Classic, which kick-offs at 1 p.m.
