Church & Synagogue To Feed 4,000 People
For the 32nd consecutive year, the Congregation B’nai Israel’s Kantor Family Center for Justice and Ebenezer Missionary Baptist Church in Boca Raton, will partner to serve Thanksgiving dinner to more than 4,000 people in need on Tuesday, November 24.
This year the event will be held at the church, which is located at 200 N.E. 12th Street in east Boca Raton.
Congregation and church members, local restaurants and country clubs, and many other members of the community will join together to provide turkey with all the trimmings, pies, cakes, cookies and more to individuals and families who would otherwise go without during the holidays.
Attendees this year include individuals and families served by a number of local nonprofit organizations, including American Association of Caregiving Youth, Barton’s Boosters, Boca Love Outreach, Caridad Center, Farmworker Coordinating Council, Florence Fuller Development Center, In the Pines-South, Jewish Association for Residential Care, Jim & Jan Moran Boys and Girls Club, Let’s Grow Well Together, Pearl City Cats, Propel Youth Organization and The Lord’s Place.
Outreach is also being made to homeless people as well as people living in transitional housing.
Food, beverages — and other products and services — have been donated or discounted by Augie’s Restaurant, Forster Family Food Pantry, Hurricane Wings, Office Depot Foundation, Publix, Smokey Bones Bar & Fire Grill, Sous Chef – T.J. Boeninghaus, Stallone’s, Sunquest Nursery, The Sidewalk Chef – Shashank Agtey, Thomas Produce, Vicky & Gary Weiner Family and VIP Caterers.
More than 400 volunteers from Congregation B’nai Israel and the Ebenezer Missionary Baptist Church will serve the Thanksgiving meals — which will include turkey, fried chicken, corn bread, stuffing, collard greens and desserts (everything imaginable in a community-wide feast).
There also will be singing and dancing with Miss Susan — and Harriet Rubin and the Boca Pointe Clowns On Call Group will be doing face painting, tableside magic, balloon art and much more! This part of the event is open to all.
