Flint non-profit organization, Well of Hope, is scheduled to host its 11th Annual Blessed to be a Blessing Thanksgiving dinner on Tuesday, November 26, 2019 from 4-6 p.m at Center for Hope, 812 Root Street, Flint, Mich. More than 50 volunteers will gather to serve families a complete turkey dinner, including dressing, macaroni and cheese, yams and dessert. At the conclusion of dinner, guests will be provided with free pairs of socks, which have been collected through a city-wide sock collection drive sponsored by Elga Credit Union. There will be raffles and giveaways taking place at the dinner and DJ C-Nice will provide live entertainment.
“I am overwhelmed with gratefulness that the City of Flint has continued to support a God-given dream,” said Chia Morgan, founder and coordinator of the dinner. “The cooks are preparing for 600 guests and it is anticipated that each guest will leave with six to eight pairs of new socks as we prepare for a brutally cold winter,” Morgan said.
The dinner is funded by donors of all levels including, platinum sponsors: Community Foundation of Greater Flint, Mott Community College, Elga Credit Union, Robert & Sharonna Owens and HAP and gold sponsors: United Way of Genesee County, MTA, Pentecostal Temple Apostolic Church and UAW Local 598.
Guests who are in need of transportation to the dinner can contact the Well of Hope office at 810-789-3407 until November 20, 2019 for complete details.
