  • Local church gives out free Thanksgiving lunches

Pastor Collins said, "growing up in the inner city of Chicago I understood what it was like to have holidays and not have food". "One of the drivers has Heritage Village". Previous year more than 400 meals were delivered.

Jolyn said her family had participated as a volunteer with the Thanksgiving dinner for seven years on an on-and-off basis.

Kendrick said the food bank helps to feed 20% of Monterey County year-round, and in 2016, 2,600 meals were served at the Thanksgiving event. The meals are meant to be ordered and can either be picked up or delivered right to your door at no cost.

"It's just a great spirit within our own church. Say you need something and we're there", said church member Susan Lucas. They'll do anything for the people in the community.

"This is our first time to volunteer on Thanksgiving Day", Stephine Limon said. "That's part of what Jesus did". Every day, faithful volunteers like those pictured come to CCM and help in the food pantry or the clothing closet or simply just come in to pray with clients who need prayer.

At 7 a.m., volunteers began carving the turkeys.

Ostermaier's wife, Cleota, was mixing up large pans of mashed potatoes during the meal.

"We have a 1-year-old". "I love it. People are really nice here".


"I'd probably be in my pajamas watching TV", said Vera Michelson.

"We really enjoy it", he said. So the dinner was convenient and a way to spend more time with her daughter.

"It's about being with friends", said Michelle Vee as she sat with a group of family and friends. It's easy, even though you're exhausted when you get done, but it always works out attractive. The Kennedy's wish to express how grateful they are to serve the community and are thankful for your business and continued support.

Trinity Church served two meals at 11:30 and 12:30 today, with all of the Thanksgiving fixings.

Siverly said the church even went up to Hickory for a delivery. Likewise, they may have somewhere else to go, or they may not.

"I like handing out the pies", Caleb said. "We weren't going to say no because we believe in giving as much as we can".

Cairns thanked the volunteers who gave their time for preparing the meal. "It can be a humbling experience to serve others, and it puts your life in perspective". The lunch has become something of a tradition for the long-time parishioners. "They get bitten by the St. Susan Center bug", Smith said.
