First United Methodist Church holds annual Thanksgiving dinner
LUBBOCK, Texas -
First United Methodist Church of Lubbock hosted its 27th annual thanksgiving dinner today.
The event was at the christian life center near the intersection of 13th and avenue O.
The church anticipated giving out around 12 hundred turkey dinners at the event.
"Come and enjoy a thanksgiving meal," volunteer coordinator Nancy Edwards said. "Sometimes people can't go home, like college kids, or sometimes people have the kids out of the house and they don't want to fix a dinner so what we want to do is incorporate the whole community."
The church has given out more than 24 thousand thanksgiving dinners in 27 years.
