Thanksgiving 2006 Running Out of Space
This 20 year old college student began his tradition of helping to serve Thanksgiving Meal at the Mission when he was in the 7th grade reports his mother. It has become a family tradition. One women reported that it was her 23rd year volunteering during the holiday.
Additional tables had to set up in the hallways to meet the growing needs of the community's needy seeking a hot Thanksgiving meal.
We were surprised at Thanksgiving Lunch today as the line waiting for a meal became endless. The dining hall was packed and we had to set up 8 additional tables in the halls and reception area to meet the growing need. Thank God we had a good number of volunteers to help set up the new dining areas.
