The Effingham County FISH organization will sponsor the 13th annual free Effingham County Thanksgiving Day Dinner on Thursday, Nov. 23, at St. John’s Lutheran Church in Effingham.

This free dinner is open to all Effingham County residents and their families that would like to enjoy Thanksgiving with others. The dinner will be on Thanksgiving Day, starting at 11:30 a.m.

Home delivered meals will be available for homebound individuals. There will also be transportation available to pick up and take home those people in need of a ride.

For those wishing to attend the meal, please RSVP by November 20 by contacting Susan Elke at 868-5913, Harold Heth at 868-2854 or the Effingham Senior Center at 347-5569. Please let us know when you RSVP if you need transportation.

For those that need home delivered meals, please contact the Senior Center by November 20.

We are also in need of volunteers to help set up the Parish Center, package and deliver meals to the homebound, transport individuals that need transportation to and from the church and serve those people attending the meal.

If you are interested in volunteering, please contact Elke.
