Local organizations have donated approximately 52 turkey meals to the Forsyth County Department of Social Services to distribute to families receiving child welfare services and other DSS clients in need this Thanksgiving.
Donated Thanksgiving meals that included a turkey and all the fixings were dropped off at DSS on Friday, November 19 and Monday, Nov. 22. The meals were distributed to clients of foster services and clients of Child Protective Services and In Home Services whose financial constraints would make it difficult for them to provide a Thanksgiving meal for their family.
The 52 donated meals will feed approximately 155 children and adults this holiday. Family and Children’s Services Director John Thacker thanked DSS’s community partners for helping make this holiday special for their clients.
“Each year, individuals and organizations within our community continue to support the needs of families who may need a little support at Thanksgiving,” said Thacker. “The generosity of our community has been amazing, and we would like to thank everyone who provided meals for children and families this year!”
