La Crosse students are baking pumpkin pies for the Community Thanksgiving Dinner

Thanksgiving preparations are now underway thanks to some La Crosse students!

Middle and high school students in the La Crosse School District are baking hundreds of pumpkin pies this week, ahead of the La Crosse Community Thanksgiving Dinner. Elementary students are also helping by designing table decorations and greeting cards!

“It feels good knowing that we’re helping people that could use it too. Because not a lot of people do this on a regular basis,” said Longfellow Middle School 8th Grader Tymia Robinson.

The La Crosse Community Thanksgiving Dinner is next Thursday at the La Crosse Center, from 11:00 a.m. through 3:00 p.m. Those unable to attend can request a delivered meal through the event’s website.
