COLDSPRING — Sunday, Nov. 21, marked the 11th annual San Jacinto County Community Thanksgiving Feast. Citizens gathered together to receive a hot meal and food to prepare for the holidays.
The Community Feast was hosted by the San Jacinto County Outreach Committee. They reached out to the local churches, organizations, and businesses to help assist in making this event possible.
The SJC Outreach Committee is where churches, community leaders, and concerned citizens come together to make a difference in homes, communities, and local counties. It is done by assisting individual, and group outreach efforts by offering mental, physical, emotional, and financial support as needed.
Last year, with the help of other local churches, organizations, and businesses, the San Jacinto County Outreach Committee was able to feed more than 500 people and gave out turkey dinner bags to 300 families. This year, with the pandemic at hand, major adjustments were made and CDC Guidelines were followed to ensure each person involved in this year’s dinner remained safe.
The SJC Outreach Committee sends a big thank you to everyone who played a part.
