What is a Thanksgiving Community Event?

Thanksgiving community events were created to provide individuals in the Raleigh NC community an opportunity to enjoy a traditional Thanksgiving meal. The goal of these events is to feed the hungry and connect members of the community and build relationships. Thanksgiving meals are not just for the homeless. If you want a good meal and some company think about joining or volunteering at these local events.

These events also give members of the community a chance to volunteer their time and/or donate money to give back to those less fortunate. These events typically occur either on Thanksgiving Day or the week leading up to the Thanksgiving holiday.
