A Thanksgiving feast — delivered

Let Go and Soar Ministries, along with the Weaverville Lions Club, Mountain Chapel and the Soup Kitchen came together to provide hot Thanksgiving meals, safely delivered to the front doors of many families around the area.

The kitchen at Mountain Chapel Church was alive with activity Thursday as a handful of volunteers prepared, packaged and sent out the Thanksgiving feasts. “Kitchen Captain” Denise Voggs donned a bright T-shirt with the message “Be Strong” to Trinity County residents.

“This too, shall pass,” she said, of the pandemic.

Sharron Scott and Voggs worked for days to cook Thanksgiving turkeys and trimmings for many households around the county. On the turkey feast assembly line were Voggs, Sharron Scott, Annie and Ryan Nugent and Kathy Stevens. Drivers arrived at the kitchen to pick up and deliver the meals. About a dozen people altogether volunteered.

After about 3.5 hours, 236 meals had been delivered. Scott said they planned to serve just over 100 people and “they just kept showing up.”

The group is now planning a Christmas dinner that will take place in the same fashion.
