Local church provides Thanksgiving baskets to the community

Holy Trinity Church In Hartford Offers A Thanksgiving Meal For Everyone

Arnold United Methodist Church has been hosting a sit-down Thanksgiving dinner for at least 30 years.

Pastor Neil Taylor said the meal was a way to bring the community together to celebrate the holiday each year. "We are pretty blessed and we trying to bless other people too". They'll do anything for the people in the community. "They treated me really really really well, just like a family should treat you".

A historic church in Pembroke is starting a new tradition.

"We have a lot of little jobs that make a big event", Stewart said as meals were prepared in the kitchen. Again, on Thursday, Nov. 23, the meal deliveries will occur. Everybody wants to do this. I don't see this going away.

The church delivered meals to five counties but people from all over showed up for a sit down meal or they picked up meals to take back to their families.

The 350 to-go meals is the most they've delivered, but according to Keetra Welling, they were done earlier this year. "In house, we serve usually between 250-350 people".

This is Tedder's second year in a row coming to the church for Thanksgiving. "We're more than happy to be a part of giving back".

Kathy Van Meter, a Meals on Wheels co-chair, said clients are extended an invitation to receive a Thanksgiving meal from Bethany Church each year. "Even if it's just for a couple of minutes, it's a nice experience to cheer somebody up and pass along some joy", said David Bohovsky, a volunteer. "Two-in-one; I don't have to cook, as well".

One local church helped serve meals around the city on Thanksgiving to those in need.

"We'll come and pick them up so they can get out of their apartment and enjoy the fun", Engelkamp said.

"We volunteer here and then we go get him for dinner", Renee explained. "So we're just grateful that we're able to do this".

"She was praying about a vision she had to start this", Guza said.

"They plan for months for this", Waltenbaugh said. "The food was good".

The menu consists of turkey, dressing, potatoes with gravy, a vegetable, roll and dessert.

"It's a full day's work", Reis said. "I went a year ago and I liked it so much that I went back".
