Annual Feed the Need Thanksgiving Nov. 28
If the outreach workers of Telisa Franklin Ministries have their way, every homeless person on the streets of Memphis and Shelby County will enjoy a nice, traditional meal this year on Thanksgiving Day. At the fifth annual Feed the Need last year, TFM fed 500 men, women, and children, nearly a third of the local homeless population.
In addition to the Thanksgiving meal, participants were also given blankets, coats, toiletries, shoes, health screenings, haircuts, and other personal services offered by local business owners. This year's event is slated for Thursday, Nov. 28 at the Hollywood Community Center, 1560 Hollywood Street.
Volunteers and others who would like to donate any items of clothing or food, should contact Telisa Franklin at 901-281-6337.
