St. John's will be doing a modified Thanksgiving meal for Richland Center on Thanksgiving Day and we need your help.
Nothing will take place at St. John's. The meal will be by delivery or pick up only. We are partnering with a local restaurant in a way that we intend to be a win-win-win event for Richland Center.
+ People in need or who are lonely will receive a Thanksgiving meal.
+ We will be helping a local business while at the same time using a space and method in which we need fewer volunteers in the kitchen and in contact with one another.
+ We will be able to rally the community of Richland Center to come together at a time when so much is being cancelled and there is so much division.
