Thanksgiving Feast Donations

Posted: Updated:

Two is often better than one...

That was certainly the case today when two groups in Minot joined together -- for the benefit of families who may struggle to fill the Thanksgiving table without some help.

The Magic City Lions along with the Young Professionals of Minot teamed up to buy and deliver a Thanksgiving meal to families in need.

Perry Olson has the story.

It was a steady stream of carts full of Thanksgiving fare Tuesday at MarketPlace Foods. The Lions, and the Young Professionals, paring together man power, and checkbooks to bring a hearty meal to families in need...

(Josh Ressler - Lions Member) "It helps out ten families in the community that maybe wouldn't have a big meal this Thanksgiving and maybe we can bring some sunshine to them this holiday season."

Community Action supplied the families in need -- and these groups supplied the tools needed to make the meal happen. Double the number than any previous year...

(Josh Ressler - Lions Member) "YP was looking for some extra things to do...this was a good thing and not rethinking the wheel, we could just combine and go out and help more in the community."

Everything you'd expect was picked up...

(Josh Ressler - Lions Member) "We have the turkey, the buns, the pie, juice, veggies...I don't think we are missing anything in here."

The meals were rounded up in quick fashion...and then tallied up as well...a large sum...but divide that by ten -- and you've got about 60 bucks a meal or so...

"I have to pay the bill...and it is a bill I am happy to pay...very happy because it is going for a good cause."

From here it was off to the homes that will have a Thanksgiving this year, for delivery..

(Gene Neal - Lions Member) "There is usually children and they are very appreciative and thankful.

...and the end of another successful project -- this time, double the size, thanks to cooperation, and teamwork. In Minot, Perry Olson, KX News.
