The Chattanooga Area Young People's Department of the African Methodist Episcopal Church will sponsor their 21st annual Thanksgiving Community Dinner being held at St. Paul AME Church, 2514 Williams St. in Chattanooga, beginning at 1 p.m. on Saturday, Nov. 21.
Officials said, "Due to the ongoing Coronavirus pandemic, we are asking everyone to donate gift cards in lieu of can goods to support this year's event. All gift cards can be donated at the church on the day of the event, or they can be mailed as a general donation to the church at the address above. Please indicate YPD Dinner Donation on the envelope. Money Orders are also acceptable, however we cannot take checks. Not only will we feed the community, but we will also prepare food baskets for several families throughout the community during the upcoming holiday season.
"If you do not want to cook on Nov. 21, just bring a gift card donation and receive a “free" meal. We are preparing to feed 125 plus souls.
"If you know of someone that could benefit from a food basket, please let us know. We will need for you to provide 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.
"All COVID-19 protocols will be followed and all meals will be distributed outside."
The menu is as follows:
Turkey & Dressing
There is a limit of one meal per individual. You may call 423-421-4688 for any additional information.
