The members of Affton Christian Church (Disciples of Christ) continue a community outreach project that began 10 years ago - to provide a free Thanksgiving dinner on Thanksgiving Day. The number of meals served has increased from 50 in 2008 to over 500 meals in 2017. The mission is to provide a meal and place for people who don’t want to be alone on Thanksgiving Day or are unable to afford a holiday meal for themselves or their families. ACC will also deliver meals in a limited area to homebound community members. Those interested in meal delivery or transportation to/from the church are asked to call ahead by November 20th (314.631.5777). Over 100 volunteers come together to make this special day happen, many of whom do not attend ACC. These are simply kind-hearted souls who want to “’pay it forward.” Some local area businesses also participate by donating goods and services that supplement the ACC outreach funds designated to support this important annual event.
