Annual Thanksgiving Community Dinner At African Methodist Episcopal Is Saturday

Tuesday, November 6, 2012

The Chattanooga Area Young People's Department (YPD) of the African Methodist Episcopal (AME) Church, sponsor the annual Thanksgiving Community Dinner at the church, 2514 Williams Street, Chattanooga, beginning at 2 p.m. on Saturday. 

Organizers said, "Please reserve this date to share with the YPD’ers as we reach out to help someone in the community to have a “Happy Thanksgiving” by donating non-perishable items, or if someone wants to donate Turkeys, they are more than welcome to. If you don’t want to cook, just bring a donation of some non-perishable item and receive a meal. Not only will we be serving the community, but we will be able to fellowship as a church family as well.

"If you know of someone that could benefit from a food basket, let us know. We need for you to get their name, address, phone number and how many family members are in their household. This will help us to provide enough food for that household."

Call 423 265-6869 for additional information.

The menu is as follows:

Turkey & Dressing

Green Beans

Potato Salad

Cranberry Sauce

Rolls

Tomatoes
