Hi Roy- I love that Gaithersburg is providing this service for its community. No one in our country should go without the kind of meal you and I enjoy at Thanksgiving.

I love seeing people helping others that don't have the resources that they have, everyone should be able to enjoy a nice Thanksgiving dinner.
