Here's how it works. People apply to be accepted to the event. Once they come they go through a church service and then they are sent to the main tent. This is where I've always helped! They go through a huge assembly line where they are given a FULL Thanksgiving dinner! When I say full I mean it. They are given so much food, including a whole turkey at the end! This year Sarah and I were in charge of potatoes. When they walked by us we put an entire bag of potatoes in their cart and sent them on their way to get celery.
As I said this is one of my favorite events to help at. It is amazing to see the faces of the people because they are so grateful for everything. Next year if you get the chance to help, I fully recommend it!
