As a pianist tapped holiday tunes and New Yorkers in need munched on complimentary lunches, Catholic Charities distributed all the ingredients necessary for a Thanksgiving feast to more than 400 persons in need at the Lt. Joseph P. Kennedy Community Center in Harlem on November 26. Each guest received a turkey and all the trimmings: potatoes, yams, stuffing and more.
Msgr. Kevin Sullivan gave his blessing on the event as he called attention to the plight of hungry New Yorkers.
- This year, Catholic Charities served over 6 million nutritious meals to New Yorkers in need.
- Join us in Feeding Our Neighbors this Thanksgiving season.
“Thank you for inviting me to volunteer today to distribute Thanksgiving dinners. It went very smoothly and the people that received the turkey’s really appreciate everything that Catholic Charities did for them. It was a very special morning for me, and the volunteer team was great. Have a wonderful Thanksgiving” – Diane Thompson
