For over 30 year St. Anthony Campus Ministry has been hosting a community Thanksgiving meal. It has seen many changes, when it started as a senior citizen meal. For years, it was hosted for the homeless in the area. Today, it is a community meal, open to all. Nobody is turned away.
This year, Mother Nature had her say in the day, dropping a rare rain shower just minutes before we started serving food. A fast-acting group of parent and student volunteers made some changes to the day and we were able to pull off the meal without a hitch.
Hundreds of meals were served, with the help of over 200 volunteers. None of this would have been possible without the generosity of the families who believed in the project and supported it with hours and food items. Over 200 pounds each of potatoes, corn, green beans, and yams. 50 cooked turkeys and hams, hundreds of paper good, drinks, and decorations were donated. All of that needed to be prepared, cooked and served.
Thank you to all of the donors and volunteers who made this day possible, and helped keep the tradition alive. You are all SAINTS!
