Gannon University on Saturday started getting into the Christmas Spirit with their 35th Annual Social Work Christmas Dinner.
Students volunteered their time to serve those in need a hot Christmas meal. Organizers say this year was bigger than what they expected.
They say, helping the community, is an important part of what they do at Gannon.
"We have probably 200-300 volunteers that came out today, and there is not that many in the social work program or in the humanities at all," said sophomore Social Work major at Gannon Brittany Kane. "It kind of just show how much they say that it really influenced our community, so they wanted to be a part of it."
Kane tells us they served over 500 meals on Saturday.
