Kansas City, Mo. – November 26, 2012 Grantham University hosted Operation Thanksgiving for the sixth year in a row with the proceeds benefitting Della Lamb Community Services, an organization that provides Thanksgiving groceries to needy families in the Kansas City area. This year, Grantham’s employees collected 2,766 food items and raised an additional $2,491.00.
