Community Thanksgiving Dinner
November 11 @ 2:00 pm - 6:00 pm EST
The Boys and Girls Club Family Center, located at 100 Acorn Street in Springfield will open its doors to members of the community for its third annual Community Thanksgiving Dinner on Sunday, November 11, 2018 from 2 p.m. – 6 p.m.
The Boys & Girls Club Family Center is extremely proud to be able to continue to bring the residents of the city of Springfield together during the beginning of the holiday season.
Local organizations have joined the effort in support of the community. American International College has provided several healthy side dishes, The Association of Black Businesses & Professionals has continued to provide funds for the Boys & Girls Club Family Center to purchase the needed turkeys for the event. Farm Credit East is working with farmers to donate produce, and several other organizations throughout the city will be involved in making this event a continued success.
“Working closely with many of the businesses and organizations within the city, we understand that there are people in our community who struggle to make ends meet or who live alone and feel they have little to celebrate,” says Dodds. “Our neighbors are family and we need to be present for them. We are grateful for the positive response from the businesses and organizations that have asked to help. Their generosity and concern for those who may not have the financial means or emotional support that many of us may take for granted has helped make this event possible.”
The Boys & Girls Club Family Center anticipates serving over 300 guests this year. The event is free and open to the public. No reservations needed. For more information, contact Nyasia Dubois, 413-739-4743.
