Marmion Academy JROTC Adventure Platoon students present the Chaves Family with their Thanksgiving dinner basket. The Chaves' were one of 20 area families who received Thanksgiving Dinner ingredients and a $50 gift card.

Marmion Academy’s JROTC Adventure Platoon provided twenty Kane and Kendall County families with food for Thanksgiving. Each family, selected by DayOne Network in Geneva, was given a frozen turkey and ingredients necessary for a traditional Thanksgiving dinner as well as a $50 gift card on Nov. 19.

The cadets raised money for the Thanksgiving dinner giveaway by hosting a “Turkey Raffle” and by collected canned goods from local communities. 

This is the 15th year that Marmion has teamed up with DayOne for a Thanksgiving Drive.  

DayOne Network, Inc. is a community-based nonprofit organization that provides service coordination and advocacy services to people with developmental disabilities and delayed individuals of all ages in Kane and Kendall Counties, and in Hanover Township since 1989. 

Marmion Academy, a Catholic-Benedictine college preparatory school for young men, is located at 1000 Butterfield Road in Aurora.  For more information, visit marmion.org.
