FREE Thanksgiving Dinner
Bethany Ev. Lutheran Church (3104 West Liberty Avenue, Pittsburgh 15216 - Dormont) will hold its annual FREE Thanksgiving Dinner for the community.
For over the past quarter century, the congregation of Bethany, along with support from other local churches, has been blessed to be able to provide a FREE Thanksgiving Dinner as a community service on Thanksgiving Day. Dinner will be served from 1:00 - 5:00 p.m.
Some who attend are homeless, some are struggling financially and some have no close family with whom to spend the holiday. For folks who are shut-in or otherwise homebound, delivery service is provided. Everyone is welcomed and each is treated to good fellowship and a traditional Thanksgiving dinner with turkey, stuffing, mashed and sweet potatoes, vegetable, rolls, pumpkin and fruit pies, and coffee and tea.
They will need donations of cooked turkeys and turkey breasts (in their juices), stuffed or unstuffed (your choice), stuffing mix, mashed potatoes, candied yams/sweet potatoes and pies. Thanks to all who donate food and to the folks who volunteer to help set-up, cook, serve, deliver meals, and clean-up. If you can donate, or if you are interested in helping, please contact the church office.
