Thanksgiving Day Volunteering

  • November 28, 2013 · 10:00 AM

A friend asked if I knew of a place to volunteer on Thanksgiving Day. Off hand, I did not but I knew of 200 volunteer experts that I could ask!

If you know of a place in need of volunteering this Thursday, please comment below. If you'd like to also volunteer, don't hesitate to join in!

    Roger, how wonderful that your Mom started such a great program and that it continues 30 years later! She'd be so happy that you (and others) are carrying on her work.

    They are having dinner at the Hancock Co. 4H Fairgrounds, 620 N. Apple St. in Greenfield. The # for more info. or to volunteer is 335-7590. You can also just show up. They need people today to set up and tomorrow to deliver food or serve and clean up from 11-3. I will be helping there if anyone wants to join me. HAPPY THANKSGIVING!

    Friends, I could use some help picking up some folks to take them to Broadway Church (Fall Creek and 29th) for Thanksgiving dinner. One of them is a friend of mine who plays the piano that day during the dinner. He’s blind and has an aide, but his aide doesn’t drive either. There may be a third person who needs a ride too – they’re all in the apartments at 63rd and Keystone. They usually stay at the dinner from 10:30 to 1:30 and then will need a ride home. I usually take them but I have other people to take too. I could possibly do one way if someone could either take them or pick them up. You’re also welcome to stay for the meal, of course.

      Thanks, Kymberlee! I'll e-mail you. And I can take them home.

      OK Roger. I will call tomorrow for a specific time line and to introduce myself.

    Hi, I am new to this group (really loving this idea of working with such a great group of people!)
    I am wondering if anyone knows of somewhere needing volunteer help BEFORE Thursday?? I have to be out of town starting on Wednesday, but have some free time on Mon & Tue. Would love to do something (just not sure what), if there is a need.
    Any ideas at all would be greatly appreciated! Thanks!

      Did you try the Mozel Sanders link that Roger posted below? Perhaps they list days before Thursday

    Here are a couple of options: There’s a dinner and meals delivery at Broadway Church at Fall Creek and 29th Street – the Betty Sell Memorial Thanksgiving dinner (named after my mom, who started it nearly 30 years ago). They’ll serve about 250 and deliver another 200 meals to shut-ins (the local meals program through CICOA doesn’t deliver on Thanksgiving). They typically have enough volunteers to deliver and clean up, but anyone could find work to do if you just come as early as 9:00. E-mail me or call me at[masked] and I can send you the info. The Mozel Sanders Annual Thanksgiving Dinner is by far the largest of its kind in Indiana. I don’t know if they still need volunteers, but here’s a link:

    Mosel Sanders still had some spaces when I signed up the other day. I'll be helping at Butler towards late afternoon. If any know of a place with a need earlier in the day, please post it here. I could work something else in if I knew where to go.

We just grab a coffee and speak French. Some people have been coming every week for months... it creates a kind of warmth to the group.
