Hundreds of persons are volunteering on Thanksgiving morning to assemble hot homemade meals and deliver them with groceries to more than 1,200 people through the United Prayer Movement’s project.
Pleasant Green Baptist Church, 340 David L. Gray Drive, Kansas City, Kan., is the hub for this effort.
Volunteers signed up in advance and will assemble meals for home delivery, and deliver them this morning. Deliveries are made throughout Greater Kansas City.
This program, the effort of many churches and synagogues, also will provide the same meal effort on Christmas.
In 2013, the program provided 2,635 dinners, 391 bags of groceries to 953 families, including 245 seniors, 1753 other adults and 667 children.
There were 543 volunteers and 57 churches and synagogues involved in the effort in 2013.
