“With Thanksgiving approaching, it is important to remember that there are local families who are unable to afford everything that goes into a traditional Thanksgiving meal," said Kaminsky. "We all have something to be thankful for, and with the community’s generosity, we have been able to provide our neighbors with a warm meal for the holiday.”
