The Thanksgiving holiday is quickly approaching and many in our community each year go without a meal on their table.  Here's how you can help provide food for local families.

Angel here and it was always heartbreaking when I worked for the school system knowing there might be a child that went home on a holiday weekend and didn't have anything to eat.  Not just a holiday weekend but any weekend for that matter.

No one should ever have to wonder where a meal is coming from and the Owensboro Family YMCA has come together to help families in need.  Project Thanksgiving Feast is for any and everyone that would like to be involved.  You do not have to be a member to donate.
