RICHMOND -- A church outreach event in Richmond that originated as a small community dinner is now in its ninth year and bigger than ever.
The ninth annual Every Day Is A Day of Thanksgiving Free Community Dinner welcomes everyone for a meal with all the trimmings from noon to 3 p.m. Nov. 16 at Hilltop Church of Christ, 3000 Hilltop Mall Road.
Dinner is available on a first-come, first-serve basis and there will also be free bags of groceries and free ham and turkeys for as long as they last.
Last year's event served more than 1,500 people at the church and delivered another 1,000-plus meals to shut-ins in the area.
The event is held through donations of individuals, organizations and businesses and monetary donations are accepted for the outreach effort.
