SARASOTA (WWSB) - Five churches will prepare Thanksgiving meals for families around the area.
On Thursday, November 22 from 1 p.m. to 4 p.m. volunteers from the local Rotary Club will prepare turkeys, stuffing and potatoes for churches in Port Charlotte, North Port and Englewood. Over 200 turkeys have been donated through various fundraising activities and New Hope will also feature outdoor games Thanksgiving Day.
Deliveries begin mid-morning in North Port and by noon in Port Charlotte. The churches are sharing their resources, so each church group has ample to serve.
