Lending a helpful hand this holiday

The holiday season is all about being thankful for what we have and giving back.

With Thanksgiving just a little less than a week away, plans are already being made to make this year’s annual community Thanksgiving meal.

The Gillani Volunteer Association holds the event every year at the McDowell County Senior Center and provides a free, hot meal to those in need on Thanksgiving Day.

Each year, dozens of volunteers are needed to help make this event a success. Last year, more than 3,000 people benefitted from this annual community meal.

If you or a group you’re affiliated with would like to help in some way, please call the Volunteer Center (828)659-0826 or email at volctr@mcdowellgov.com with a time and job you would like to help with.
