SJU students bake Thanksgiving pies for food pantries

By Christina Santucci

More than 70 St. John’s University students spent their Sunday evening baking pies for Queens food pantries, churches, a senior center and a foster care facility. Students from 11 fraternities and sororities prepped about 1,050 apples to fill around 300 pies. St. John’s chose five organizations, where they planned to deliver 200 of the pies, as well as 300 turkeys. Assemblyman Rory Lancman partnered with St. John’s and arranged for donations to six other sites, which they said were in need. Councilman James Gennaro encouraged participation in the event.
