GREENWICH, Conn. -- First Presbyterian Church of Greenwich will host its 18th annual Thanksgiving dinner for senior citizens at noon Thursday in the church’s Fellowship Hall.
The FPCG community comes together every year to host a Thanksgiving dinner for seniors complete with home-cooked turkey and all the trimmings.
About 100 volunteers orchestrate a sit-down meal for more than 100 Greenwich seniors who would otherwise be alone on Thanksgiving. The volunteers plan the menu, buy ingredients, prepare side dishes, contribute cooked turkeys, and deliver and serve meals. They also contribute by baking and wrapping pumpkin loaves, decorating, setting up, and cleaning up, providing transporting for those who need it, recruiting and managing volunteers, taking RSVPs, scheduling meal deliveries, publicizing the event and entertaining at the event.
“This Thanksgiving Dinner is an important part of our community outreach,” said Rev. Erin M. Keys, associate minister. “Our congregation is committed to serving our neighbors, and this dinner invites people into our church home as guests. We are delighted to offer this event to the Greenwich community and to share in Thanksgiving together."
To RSVP call Renie at (203) 637-1807. Transportation requests will also be taken.
The church is located at 1 W. Putnam Ave.
