Helping Your Neighbors This Thanksgiving

Thursday is Thanksgiving Day. But not everyone can afford to enjoy a meal with friends and family during the holidays, or any day. In Connecticut, it is estimated that about one in eight households--12 percent of our population--are 'food insecure,' meaning they have a reduced quality, variety, or desirability of food in their diet. Children are affected, too.

Connecticut Food Bank.

If you are able, please take a moment to think of your neighbors and of those less fortunate than you. You can visit the www.ctfoodbank.org that is accepting food or cash donations, or is in need of volunteers.

Additionally, local organizations are assisting families, right here in our community:

Food Drive
MACC Community Kitchen will kick off the Emergency of Hunger Food Drive this weekend, Saturday and Sunday November 17 and 18, at Manchester Stop & Shop, 286 Broad Street, from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. each day.

Coat Drive
Best Cleaners
2759 Main Street, Glastonbury; 860-633-0591
Open 7 a.m. to 8 p.m., Monday through Friday
7 a.m. to 6 p.m. Saturday

I wish you abundance, hope, peace and a festive holiday season.

Happy Thanksgiving to you!
