Every year Affton Christian Church spends Thanksgiving Day serving a free traditional dinner to anyone who cares to join them. Some wouldn't otherwise get a good meal that day. Some would otherwise spend the holiday alone. All are grateful for the wonderful food and even more wonderful hospitality of the many volunteers who make the event happen.
Nearly 550 meals were served this year, which is 200 more than last year. The meals are available for people who want to dine in there at the church or take a carry-out to enjoy at home. They even offer delivery service to those who can't get to the church.
ACC members were joined by over 70 volunteers from the community this year, which helped them almost double the number of meals served.
Pastor David Woodard noted that a high point of the day was was seeing people connect with those that shared a meal together in previous years.
