Twice a year, students at the College of St. Scholastica in Duluth set aside the schoolwork to give back to their community.

Hundreds of first-year students are put on Thanksgiving in the Spring Wednesday, bringing meals to Twin Ports' organizations and people who can't leave their homes. Starting at eight o'clock in the morning, students packed more than 2,000 meals before loaded them into cars to be delivered.

Magan McCusker, a sophomore, said "we're trying to reach out to the community of Duluth. It's a different perspective from up here on the hill. You're going down and immersing yourself."

CSS staff said Thanksgiving in the Spring gives students the chance to live out their values by supporting members of the community in need.
