GREENSBORO, N.C. — For 23 years, a dedicated group of volunteers has served up a complete Thanksgiving dinner with all the fixins — from turkey to mashed potatoes to pumpkin pie — for Greensboro’s homeless, hungry, homebound and elderly poor. This totals more than 4,000 meals each year.
Formerly known as the Thanksgiving Fund, the effort has now expanded and been renamed the Holiday Fund. Last year, Anna Freiberg, owner of Bender’s Tavern, started a Christmas meal in the same tradition to the same population.
And it is time, again, to support this effort!
