In the spirit of Thanksgiving, the University of Maryland, Eastern Shore (UMES) is holding a 30-day, campus wide campus drive to collect items for families that are less fortunate to make it easier during the holiday season.

UMES is no stranger to Thanksgiving and holiday drives, and in the past few years, has fed thousands of grateful families with help from organizations like Maryland Food Bank.

The 2011 UMES Thanksgiving food drive met its goal of helping 600 families.
