By 10 a.m. Nov. 21, the busy Camden Area Christian Food Pantry had already distributed most of its special items for home-cooked Thanksgiving dinners, including turkeys, stuffing mix and cranberry sauce, along with weekly grocery items. For more information, call 236-9790.

For those who do not plan to cook at home and are looking for a free, traditional Thanksgiving dinner, along with the fellowship of community members, two local churches are supporting the spirit of giving for the holiday. All are welcome.

At the First Congregational Church, Thanksgiving dinner is served Nov. 23 at noon. Those who are alone or without family this Thanksgiving, or who just don’t have the energy or inclination to cook, are invited to join the church family for a fine turkey dinner with all the trimmings. The dinner is sponsored each year by the Outreach Committee and is underwritten by funds generated by Heavenly Threads. Donations are gratefully accepted to defray dinner costs and to continue the church's outreach mission. The church is located at 55 Elm St. For more information, call 236-4821.

At St. Thomas' Episcopal Church, Thanksgiving dinner is served Nov. 23 at 2 p.m. The church is at 33 Chestnut St. Walk-ins are welcome. For more information, call 236-3680.
