Dear Edmonson Voice,
FREE THANKSGIVING DINNER!!!! The catch? There is none. After years of working with the young people in our school system, I found many who didn’t have fond memories of this holiday. To me, Thanksgiving is about spending time with people who I love or want to be with, eating way too much delicious food and just simply being thankful for all I have. So I decided to give people, who for whatever reason a place to experience some of what I love about this holiday. This is a free dinner with no strings or requirements, Of course it is open to anyone who can’t afford a dinner, but more than that, we want to invite anyone who wants to come. Your reason for coming and eating up to you. There will be a donation box at the door for those who want to donate, but it is in no way required. This is a ministry of ours and we do this with Jesus at our side, but in no way will you be preached at. We simply do this to offer fellowship with people who want to experience a great dinner with great people.
We will not go door to door asking for support from local business, although we hope to get some. So many are hit up for donations daily already. I would like to see some our community give because they are thankful not because they were cornered. This is thanksgiving and it should be in our hearts to be thankful. If someone wants to donate monies that would be greatly appreciated. We will be happy to have volunteers to help serve and prepare.
