Jefferson: Groups, businesses and residents come together to feed the needy

Several restaurants, churches and nonprofit organizations in Jefferson County are planning to offer free Thanksgiving meals Thursday to indigent residents.

The largest event, sponsored by Community Enterprises, will be from noon to 3 p.m. at Fort Worden State Park Dining Hall.

Organizers say they expect several hundred people to attend the event, in its second year at the state park.

Local church groups, Rotary clubs, business and other organizations donated more than $600, 40 turkeys and scores of pies for the event.

“The community has been great,” said organizer Linda Haskell. “The donations this year have been tremendous.”
