Thanksgiving Ministries at Emmanuel a Huge Success

Emmanuel Hosted a Free Community Dinner on Thanksgiving day. Thanks to the efforts of Gary Brookins, Tim Thompson, Charlie McMullen, Bernie Dye, and a host of other volunteers, we served a little over 400 meals. Of these meals about 65-70 were actual sit down meals and the remainder were delivered meals or take outs. We are fortunate to have so many wonderful volunteers to serve the dinner, deliver meals, and clean up. And Thank You to those who supplied pies that were served for dessert with the dinners.

Emmanuel also gave out 100 Save-A-Lot gift cards to families in need to use for their Thanksgiving meal. These gift cards were given out on the Friday before Thanksgiving and we wish to thank the two volunteers, Lynne Walton and Van Mason for making themselves available to hand out the gift cards and see that all distribution ran smoothly.
