Thanksgiving Thursday is coming up and thousands of people will gather up for the community dinners and volunteers will help for the same. It is an annual tradition where hot turkey dinner is served to the poor and homeless people on Thanksgiving day. Here are the list of places where you can get free food or volunteer to help in serving food on Thanksgiving holiday.
GIVING BACK is what we do! This team has done an amazing job preparing and serving the families at the Ronald McDonald House. Everyone deserves to be happy! Great job @Aran_5087 for your coordination and execution of this event. @GladysGuardado5 @RobLo5087 @DSlobom @lajacska01 pic.twitter.com/zHS4nKssH5

This week, Kearns Mayor Kelly Bush made a post asking for help. She wanted every family who visited the community food pantry today to have the staples for a Thanksgiving meal. She met that goal because our community came together. 🥘 🌽 🦃 #utpol pic.twitter.com/eT6ThM8PzB
