The Annual Community Thanksgiving Dinner, hosted by the East Central University Human Resources Club and other community partners and student organizations, is set for Monday, Nov. 20, from 5:30 p.m.-8:30 p.m. at the Pontotoc County Agri-Plex, 1710 N. Broadway, in Ada.
The dinner is free to all community members while supplies last. The format will be the same as past years. However, meals will not be delivered.
Approximately 1,500 people were served a Thanksgiving dinner last year, according to Kelley Gutierrez, president of the ECU Human Resources Club.
Donations are accepted and can be made to the ECU Human Resources Club in care of the ECU Foundation, Inc.
“While the community at-large is always extremely generous in donating the majority of food products necessary to provide a meal of this size, we often find the need to purchase items that are not donated,” said Gutierrez.
