Great news! The Sisters of St. Joseph Thanksgiving Dinner is a “go.” And it’s all thanks to everyday heroes like you – our volunteers, partners, and donors, who do ordinary things with extraordinary love.
You may not think that making a gift is heroic, but it is. Without you, far too many neighbors would be without a meal on Thanksgiving Day. In our area alone — one out of eight neighbors and one out of five children — struggle daily with hunger. These neighbors are of every age, race, and ethnicity. Some have jobs, some are retired and others struggle to find gainful employment. Many have never faced food insecurity until now.
Due to the ongoing COVID crisis, we will not be able to offer onsite dining on Thanksgiving. But we WILL be able to deliver Thanksgiving meals to the hungry, lonely and homebound. And we expect the request for meals to surpass 1,100 meals again this year.
That’s why — again this year — we’re asking you to be one of the heroes who helps us fight hunger. Your gift to the Sisters of St. Joseph Thanksgiving Fund will help us deliver a full holiday meal to more than 1000 neighbors on Thanksgiving Day. And that’s not all. The remaining funds will be distributed to area food pantries, soup kitchens, shelters, and other agencies that feed the hungry and fight poverty throughout the year.
Wishing you God’s blessings this Thanksgiving and always.
Though we have to offer an abridged version of our annual Thanksgiving Dinner this year and we are limited to meal deliveries only, we share this video of some past dinners we’ve hosted. We look forward to a return of an in-person gathering next year.
The dinner is possible each year because of the hundreds of volunteers and benefactors who come together for this effort. Monetary donations help cover the cost of the dinner and provide needed resources to local shelters, food banks, and agencies throughout the year.
