Happy Thanksgiving!

As we give thanks for the blessings of family, friends, and a meal to share with them, we must also remember the least fortunate among us this Thanksgiving.

Area soup kitchens and food pantries are always in need of food, volunteers, and monetary support. If you are able to help, please consider contacting a food pantry or soup kitchen in your neighborhood.
