Last week, the Mission held its annual Day of Thanks with Trotter Elementary School on Monday, November 22nd, and then a Thanksgiving Dinner with resident guests on Thanksgiving Day, November 25th. The Mission has been holding the Day of Thanks for 29 years to assist the homeless and the poor who lack resources to have a Thanksgiving meal.
Thanks to the help of donors and volunteers, the Mission successfully gave out over 100 Complete Thanksgiving meals to parents in need at Trotter Elementary School in Dorchester. Parents in need received turkeys, stuffing, gravy, cranberry sauce, vegetables, squash, scallop potatoes, cranberry apple juice, and pies in their meal kits. With various ingredients, parents in need were able to provide a nutritious and delicious feast for their families from their own kitchen at home.
On Thanksgiving Day, numerous volunteers joined the Mission in preparing and serving meals to homeless guests. The Mission is grateful to everyone who helped create a warm and hopeful Thanksgiving for the homeless and those in need. We hope you had a wonderful Thanksgiving with your friends and family!
