Lend a helping hand! This is the time of year to be grateful for all we have. Unfortunately, there are many families that need help with the holidays including Thanksgiving.  Thanksgiving at St. Monica/St. Augustine – The long standing South Boston tradition of the Thanksgiving Dinner at St. Monica Church is being served from 11:30-1:30. For more than 30 years, Frank Kelley and his family led a brigade of volunteers who made sure thousands of people a hot turkey dinner on Thanksgiving now the South Boston community has continued this tradition in Frank’s name. It takes a village to make this dinner a reality!  Volunteer to help cook turkeys, bake a pie, make pick ups, deliveries, serve meals, set-up and clean-up!  You can email Dan Manning at [email protected]
