The staff of the Hunger Center at St. Augustine Parish is once again preparing meals to be served to the hungry on Thursday, November 22 in celebration of Thanksgiving Day.
The empty tables and chairs inside the Hunger Center will be filled with grateful persons from Cleveland's Tremont neighborhood who will be able to share a Thanksgiving Day meal because of the generosity of people throughout Northeast Ohio who have contributed to this important ministry.
Donations are being used to purchase, prepare and freeze turkey dinners to meet the seemingly ever increasing demand of hungry people who have been dealing with long-term under and unemployment.
