Free way to share thanks comes to Oregon City
November 22, 2013 by Max
A local church has set up a Thanksgiving Day Dinner to provide everyone in the area with a meal for families, whether they are young or old, rich or poor, students, shift workers, or people who are alone this holiday season and unable to prepare their own meal. Among the services likely to have been used to promote this special Thanksgiving event to people in this community and the surrounding area are poster and flyer printing.
The dinner includes a traditional Thanksgiving offering of turkey, mashed potatoes, stuffing, yams, gravy, green beans, cranberries, corn, bread, and olives. The seating is family style and people will be asked to wait to be seated. There will be a dessert cart loaded with handmade pastry and desserts, which will be served with coffee and tea.
As part of this day, there will be a children’s craft table, dental care packs, a family clothing closet, and a non-perishable cupboard that offers food items to those who need it to take home. In the true Thanksgiving tradition, the families will sit down and share a meal with other families and people from their community.
The dinner is free to the public and everyone is invited to attend. It will be happening on Thursday, November 28, from 12:00 pm to 3:00 pm at the St. John the Apostle Catholic Church located at 417 Washington Street in Oregon City, Oregon. Those who require additional information should visit the church’s website or call 503-742-8202. Volunteers are also welcome.
