One hundred roasted turkeys donated by church members and 25 smoked turkeys donated by Doziers Market helped to complete turkey and all the fixin’s delivered to over 1000 local residents on Thanksgiving Day by Calvary Episcopal Church. Once the meals were packed and ready, volunteers loaded the tasty goodies into their vehicles and made deliveries to families in greater Richmond, Rosenberg, Fulshear, Needville, Missouri City and Sugar Land. Meal recipients are identified by Fort Bend County Meals on Wheels, plus suggestions from the local elementary schools and fire departments for families not fortunate enough to have a nice Thanksgiving dinner.

“This ministry has grown every year over the past thirty years. We are so grateful to volunteers from the church, Calvary Episcopal Prep, Scout Pack 1000, St. John XXIII College Prep, the Lighthouse Indian Baptist Church and other local churches. A project of this magnitude could not happen without their help,” said Rev. Lecia Brannon, Associate Rector. “It’s an amazing process to watch. People arrive at 8:00 AM to cut hundreds of pies, we move into our sanctuary for Thanksgiving worship, and then the meals are prepared, packaged and the drivers are on their way to peoples’ homes before noon time.”
