'Community Thanksgiving' gives thanks and gives back
KIRKSVILLE, Mo. —
A community-wide Thanksgiving was held in Kirksville at the Hamilton Baptist Street Church on Thursday.
"Community Thanksgiving" is a free event in its 12th year.
"We work with a number of other organizations to help provide a dinner for everyone. It's an integrated event. It's not necessarily for people in need of a meal, but just for people who want to share a meal," said volunteer Mary Palermo.
Various organizations donate, cook and serve food for the event, which expected over 300 people.
