First Presbyterian To Hold Thanksgiving Dinner For Seniors
First Presbyterian Church of Greenwich (FPCG) will be hosting its 18th Annual Thanksgiving Dinner for Greenwich senior citizens at noon on Thursday, Nov. 26, in the church’s Fellowship Hall located at One West Putnam Avenue (top of Greenwich Avenue).
The FPCG community comes together every year to host a Thanksgiving Dinner for seniors complete with home‐cooked turkey and all the trimmings. Approximately 100 volunteers orchestrate a sit‐down meal for more than 100 Greenwich seniors who would otherwise be alone on Thanksgiving by planning the menu, buying ingredients, preparing side dishes, contributing cooked turkeys, delivering and serving meals; 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,” says FPCG Associate Minister The Reverend Erin M. Keys. “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.”
The dinner is free and all Greenwich seniors are welcome. An RSVP is required by Nov. 19 to Renie at 203‐637‐1807. Those interested should let her know if they will need transportation.
