Much more than breakfast is served: U of Scranton's "gift to the community"

SCRANTON (WOLF) -- The University of Scranton celebrated the Christmas holiday with a big community breakfast.

They say it's their way of giving back.

The DeNaples Center filled up with food, toiletries, clothes and toys - all free to anyone.

Volunteers say it's no questions asked - anybody can come to enjoy.

Whether they're lonely, hungry, or just want some holiday cheer.

Around 500 people took them up on that offer this morning.

"It's amazing. It's amazing to see and heartwarming to see all of our community come together. There's families, there's individuals, there's people who are just alone, and it really makes it worth while for us. it's a beautiful Christmas tradition," said Pat Vaccaro, Director of the University of Scranton's Campus Ministry Center for Service and Social Justice.

They say this is their 10th year hosting the event.
