Registration now open for Raidersgiving holiday meals

Wright State University community members who do not plan to go home for Thanksgiving can enjoy a free holiday meal through the 10th annual Raidersgiving.

Students, staff, faculty and alumni must register for Thanksgiving meals by Monday, Nov. 15.

Thanksgiving meals will be available for pick up on Wednesday, Nov. 24, between noon and 2 p.m., in the Student Union Apollo Room.

Community members may receive up to four free meals. Meals available this year are:

  • Traditional Thanksgiving meal: roast turkey, cornbread dressing, mashed potatoes, gravy, fresh green beans, roll and butter
  • Vegan meal: Indian stew-kidney bean and potato, basmati rice and naan bread, and chocolate chip cookies
  • Gluten-free meal: turkey, mashed potatoes, green beans and celery sage dressing with broth
  • Halal meal: chicken kabob and basmati rice, green beans, roll and butter

Although the university cannot hold the traditional in-person Thanksgiving gathering this year, the Raidersgiving committee will continue to provide meals that Wright State community members can enjoy for the holiday.

Wright State serves a large number of international students, independent scholars who have aged out of the foster system, and students who live on campus or in nearby apartments. Many of these students are unable to share the holiday with family.

Volunteers are also needed to assist with Raidersgiving on Nov. 24. To volunteer, sign up on the Raidersgiving Volunteer webpage.

Individuals who wish to support Raidersgiving with a financial contribution should visit or contact the Wright State Foundation at 937-775-2251 and donate to the Raidersgiving Fund (551369).

Raidersgiving is sponsored by individual donations; Eric Bigler ’83, ’87; the Wright State University Foundation and Pepsi. Giveaways and door prizes have been donated by Barnes and Noble Bookstore, Intercollegiate Athletics and Pepsi.
