Effingham County FISH Human Services is sponsoring the 9th Annual Free Community Thanksgiving Day Dinner on Thursday, November 28 at First Baptist Church, 213 West Fayette Avenue, Effingham.

This free dinner is open to all Effingham County residents and their families who would like to enjoy Thanksgiving with others.  The dinner will be on Thanksgiving Day starting at 11:30am.  Home-delivered meals will be available for homebound individuals.  There will also be volunteers available to transport those who wish to attend the dinner, but are without transportation.

For those persons wishing to attend the meal, please RSVP by November 25 by contacting Susan Elke at 868-5913, Harold Heth at 868-2854, or the Effingham County Senior Center at 347-5569.  Let them know when you RSVP if you need transportation.

For those who need home-delivered meals, phone the Senior Center at 347-5569 by November 25.

FISH is also in need of volunteers to help set up the Fellowship Hall, package and deliver meals to the homebound, transport individuals who need transportation to and from the church and serve those people attending the meal.  If you're interested in volunteering, phone Susan Elke at 868-5913.

This is not a dinner just for seniors, but for whoever would like to attend.  All in the county and their families are welcome.

The FISH Community Thanksgiving Day Dinner is partially funded by a grant from the Effingham County Community Foundation.
