Serving up holiday cheer

Moravian College recently hosted a holiday luncheon for residents of Bethlehem who might otherwise not be able to enjoy a seasonal feast. On Saturday, December 1, Moravian volunteers served food and fun at the Community Holiday Feast at the Church of the Nativity, on Bethlehem's south side. This was the 14th year that Moravian’s Center for Leadership and Service has organized the luncheon.

"With our ties to local community service organizations, it made sense for the Center to take on this role," says Katie Dantsin, director of leadership development. "It's also a great student leadership opportunity. Carrying on this Moravian College holiday tradition is an honor. We are pleased to provide a needed service to the community, while supporting student leadership in the coordination of the planning of the event.”

Kate Cohen ’14, a work study student at the Center for Leadership and Service, led the planning for the 2012 program, which included about 40 volunteers, including faculty, staff, and students who helped with crafts, serving meals, singing, playing instruments and other tasks.
