Community Thanksgiving dinner

Numerous members of the community who might not have had the opportunity to celebrate Thanksgiving with family members received special invitations to a community Thanksgiving meal sponsored by several White County churches, businesses, and organizations.

On Nov. 23, a community Thanksgiving, hosted by White County churches, businesses, and organizations gave 102 people the opportunity to celebrate.

Faye Randolph and Carol Bonner have been organizing the community meal since 2015, when Randolph realized how many people in the community might be alone through the holidays.

“You wouldn’t believe the number of people in this community who have no one – my heart goes out to them,” Randolph said explaining why she is passionate about the community Thanksgiving project. “I am big on families, and I don’t want to think that there was someone out there who had no one to share the holiday season with.”

Oakwood Street Church of Christ, Roberts Street Church of Christ, Kynett United Methodist Church, and Original Church of God, along with McDonald’s, KFC, Service Loan and Tax, and Averitt Express worked together to provide a traditional Thanksgiving meal for those who received an invitation to the meal.

Bonner said she and Randolph work with the churches and other groups in the community to identify people who may be alone or may not have a way to prepare a holiday meal or to attend one. Invitations are mailed to those individuals.

“When we see these people out in the community throughout the year, they always mention the meal,” Bonner said. “It has such an impact on them. They tell us how much they enjoyed it, and months later they are still talking about it.”

This year, members of the White County High School Interact Club were on hand to help serve the meal, bringing their community hours to 337 for the year.

Bonner said the greatest part of the day was as she walked around she overheard the attendees sharing stories and commenting on how the meal brought back memories of past Thanksgivings with friends and families.

“It is such a blessing to know that we brought a little happiness to these men and women,” Bonner said. “I am so thankful for a community that will support our efforts, and we are already looking forward to next year.”
