Church Continues Tradition of Serving Thanksgiving Meals

Posted: Updated:

As you sat down to enjoy your Thanksgiving meals with family and friends, there were plenty of people out there who may not have a place to go.

So one area church continued a 35-year tradition and opened its doors to make sure everyone had a warm feast.

Volunteers got right to work at Blessed Sacrament Church in West Fargo when the doors opened at 11 a.m.

Two volunteers, Bob Schumacher and his wife did not have family close by, so they decided to do something a little different. "We're home alone this year. So we decided to come out and help out," said Schumacher.

Schumacher said, "It's all about thanksgiving and helping out and being here with people that need us."

Him and his wife were serving those who did not have a place to go and those who were just looking to spend time with loved ones.

Last year Blessed Sacrament served nearly a thousand meals. This year was no exception. Volunteers served nearly 300 meals by noon.

"They're thanking that this is available to them to come and be here with people to celebrate the day," said Schumacher.

It was a day where volunteers like him and his wife took their time and spent it with those who may not have family, just so everyone could feel welcome.

The leftovers went to Churches United for the Homeless in Moorhead. The church made enough food to be able to serve a meal there.
