Continuing a family legacy of generosity, Eric & Kelly Bell of DeGraff are hosting a free Thanksgiving meal for neighbors, friends, and those who just need a warm meal and conversation.
Eric explains his why and extends the invitation:
The couple owns the former Villiage Pantry location at 451 Cretcher Street in DeGraff and says it’s the perfect spot to hold such an event.
The meal is planned to be served from noon until 2 PM on Thanksgiving day.
While the building holds just a little over 50 people at a time, the Bell’s plan is to serve hopefully 75 people.
All meals must be eaten on-site and no to-go orders will be permitted.
The Bells have not accepted any outside donations, not that there has been any lack of trying by several community members.
Eric said he and Kelly have encouraged donors to donate to other charities in the community, as this is their way of paying it forward.
Family members help prepare and serve the meal.
