2016 Katy Community Thanksgiving Dinner

 

This Community Thanksgiving Dinner is another in a long line of local community traditions in Katy Texas being held for the benefit of the less fortunate individuals living in the community. This year’s dinner is being held on Thursday November 24, 2016 or Thanksgiving Day at the First Baptist Church which is located at 600 Pin Oak Road in Katy. The dinner will start at 11AM and last until 1 PM. I am posting this information as a surprising number of folks who might want to donate time and or money plus folks who need a good meal never hear about this great local event.

 

Last year's dinner served over 1,200 hungry folks and it is expected that number will grow once again this year as it has each year in the past. Attendees will  also receive donations, blankets, slightly used coats and non-perishable food items.

 

This annual event began about 13 years ago and became a significant local event about 5-6 years ago. It began at Antioch Baptist Church in Katy. This year there are several different churches all involved in running this important event along with contributions from local merchants.

The organizers ask all folks in the community to inform them of any family or individual that they know of that is in need of a hearty Thanksgiving meal as please have them call Rhonda at 281-384-0288 or Margaret  at 281-391-9758 (habla Espanol) to place your order. The groups running this event need to know how many dinners will be served on Thanksgiving day and therefore calling for an order is required. Dinners can be eaten on site or can be picked up. Folks who cannot leave home will have dinners delivered to them. Organizers prefer for folks to eat onsite for the fellowship it brings.

Thanksgiving is a time for each individual to give God thanks for all that they have to to share with family, friends and the local community.

 

If you want to help these hungry people in our community contact Mark Wiley Donations Coordinator at 281-798-6299.

Belinda Spillman - I hope to enter by volunteering at the Fort Bend Animal Shelter. Helping homeless dogs and cats is becoming a passion for me. Thanks for the idea as I thought about trying to help these folks out but we have Dinner plans with the family. I would want to help at the actual dinner plus donate money. I may just donate needed cash..
