Call for volunteers to annual Thanksgiving dinner

Published: Thursday, November 14, 2013 at 09:58 AM.

The Oak Grove Church at 613 Madison Avenue in Port St. Joe is again the proud host for this year's annual dinner.  We are asking for the wonderful volunteers that helped make this such a success in 2012 to help again this year. With the help of the men, women and children that helped we were able to prepare, cook, package and deliver 800-plus meals to needy people in every area of Gulf County and Mexico Beach.  We will be gathering to start preparing for the Thanksgiving dinner at noon ET on Wednesday, Nov. 27.  We will need help putting boxes together, packaging cakes, slicing turkeys, and setting up tables and supplies for Thanksgiving morning. An early crew and volunteers will be needed at 6 a.m. to warm up food and assist with other food preparation on Thanksgiving Day. There will be many positions to fill on Thanksgiving morning when the dinners are assembled, boxed and delivered.

Anyone  that would like additional  information is asked to call Jerry Stokoe at 348-9108 or Jim Gainey at 227-1272.
