Great news! The Sisters of St. Joseph Thanksgiving Dinner is a “go.” Thanks to our willing
partners and some creative thinking, we’ve found a way to safely serve our neighbors in need.

Due to the COVID crisis, we won’t be able to offer onsite dining. But we WILL be able to deliver Thanksgiving meals to the hungry, lonely and homebound. And we expect the request for meals
to surpass the 800 we typically serve.

In our area alone, one out of eight neighbors – and one out of five children – struggle daily with
hunger. And this number is bound to grow. Pennsylvania food banks are reporting a surge in need, with an average 65 percent increase in demand for food assistance. These dear 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.
 
That’s why — especially this year — we’re asking you to share your blessings.

Your gift to the Sisters of St. Joseph Thanksgiving Fund will help us deliver a full holiday meal to hundreds of neighbors on Thanksgiving Day. And that’s not all. Remaining funds – above and beyond our Thanksgiving dinner costs –will be distributed to area food pantries, soup kitchens, shelters and other agencies that feed the hungry and fight poverty throughout the year.
 
Your gift — of any size — will help more than you know.

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.
