When it comes to Thanksgiving, the thought of delicious basted turkey, savory stuffing, and all the fixings come to mind. Another thing that comes to mind is the comforting feeling we get when gathering with family and friends, not just to enjoy a feast fit for a king but to embrace one another and be thankful for the many blessings in our lives. However, for many in the community, this is not the case. Some people do not have family in the area, others have difficulty cooking for themselves, and some do not have the means to purchase groceries to prepare a Thanksgiving dinner, among other factors.

Fortunately, organizations such as the Anaconda Community Foundation have made it possible for everyone to enjoy the season of giving the way it was intended. On Thanksgiving Day, November 24th, 2022, a nondenominational Anaconda Community Thanksgiving dinner and gathering will take place at Holy Family's Hunthausen Center (217 W. Pennsylvania in Anaconda). ACF members and volunteers will serve a traditional feast of turkey, ham, and more from 2 p.m. to 5:30 p.m. For those who are homebound or cannot travel, delivery will be made available at 11 a.m. on Thanksgiving Day. To request meal delivery, call RInki at (406) 563-5582 or Sandi at (406) 559-0919.

To volunteer for this year's ACF Community Thanksgiving Dinner, contact Paula at (406) 560-6792 or Melissa at (406) 529-9304. To donate, visit anacondacommunityfoundation.org. Happy Thanksgiving to you and yours, and remember, no one should be alone or go empty-handed during the season of giving or any time of the year. Show your support or your needs to be heard.
