Donations still needed for community Thanksgiving dinner

Donations still needed for community Thanksgiving dinner

A free Thanksgiving Day meal will be offered noon-2 p.m.at Zion United Church of Christ, Peru. "It would be good to know we can get some fresh people in".

More than 200 Harker Heights residents packed the sanctuary of the Methodist church for the special service.

Neustel said as the event continues to grow, organization and planning become more important each year, although that doesn't mean the process of preparing that much food gets easier. This provided a number of students the comfort and experience of a Thanksgiving meal, but there are many more people who do not have a place to enjoy a Thanksgiving dinner.

Bruce Taylor of Montclair, has been a volunteer for the past 5 years.

Chad Jenkins, a manager at Ruby Tuesday, says "Great opportunity for families that are smaller and don't want to do the cooking and cleaning and we'll take care of that for them so it's a great opportunity for the community and everybody that wants to come in for Thanksgiving". She said turkey stuffing, mashed potatoes and deserts will be a part of the event.

ARA San Juan: Missing Argentinian submarine had reported electrical malfunction, Navy says
Satellite calls thought to be from the San Juan did not help rescuers, who have been unable to locate the submarine's position. The Argentine Navy has said that they do not believe the malfunction was the reason the submarine has been missing.

Catholic Charities Executive Director Lynn Zalewski said all the Thanksgiving meal trimmings, and a gift certificate for a turkey and other items, will be provided to 100 area families who have already signed up for the option.

"Every year I say I'm not going to do it and somebody will say "You literally saved my life" and I say 'OK God". Anyone within the Shenandoah city limits wishing to have a meal delivered should call the Presbyterian Church at 712-246-3592 before Thanksgiving Day, or call the Elks Lodge on Thursday at 712-246-5110 before 11 a.m.

Students from the University of Jamestown and Jamestown High School will work to set up tables and chairs, while other groups of volunteers are tasked with the cleanup after the meal is over. "We have a nest egg that we use for when we need to buy random things that we don't have donated". Food & Shelter relies on donations for the meal to come together. The meal is free, and there will NOT be a freewill offering accepted.

The Community Thanksgiving Dinner also relies on the support of the business community.
