Free Thanksgiving dinner

November 22, 2016

MILFORD, PA — A free community Thanksgiving dinner with all the trimmings will be held at the First Presbyterian Church on Broad and Ann Streets on November 24 for those who cannot be with their families or who are in need on Thanksgiving Day.

The meal is prepared at the church and is served at 12 noon on Thursday. The day starts at 9 a.m. for the volunteers who cook the food, when they pack up and deliver turkey dinners and lots of extras to many people in Meals on Wheels programs or to anyone who finds it difficult to come out.

This program is made possible through the efforts of many people. Local businesses make donations to buy the food. Boy Scouts from local troops help with set up and delivery. Many people will bake a pie, cake, or cookies to donate for dessert. And area volunteers cook and serve the food in a pleasant family atmosphere.

For more information call 570/228-7699. The church number for calls on Thursday morning is 570/296-4711. Some transportation can be provided. Volunteers are always welcome.
