During the next few days we'll bring you a series of short stories on the different ways people celebrate Thanksgiving in Washtenaw County.  We start off by focusing on international students at Eastern Michigan University, who will not be going home for the holiday.

With Christmas just a few days away, local college campuses become a lot quieter as most students head home to be with their families.  But not every student has that opportunity.

The holidays are meant to be a happy time, but that is not always the case for many people living in our area.

It's Thanksgiving week, and while many families gather for large dinners and celebrations, not everyone is as fortunate.  For some college students, it's an even bigger struggle including in Washtenaw County.  

I was on hand when students and staff gathered to put together Thanksgiving dinner food baskets at Eastern Michigan University's "Swoop Food Pantry."
