Local resident volunteers open their homes, set an extra place or more at their Thanksgiving table, and share their food, family and traditions with international students. MFIS volunteers have generously hosted over 200 international students each year. Past students say this is one of their most memorable experiences in the US, while hosts often tell us they make lifetime international friends.
Thanksgiving Hospitality in the fall of 2022 was a big success. Thanks to all who participated and opened their homes.
This year Thanksgiving falls on Thursday, November 23, 2023.
