Families will gather on Thanksgiving around tables laden with food, but a few Doylestown-area families will spend their holiday making sure others may share that bounty.
A couple of families from the Doylestown United Methodist Church will serve a hot meal on Thanksgiving day between noon and 2 p.m. at the church at 320 E. Swamp Rd., according to Jill Kahlenberg, one of the organizers.
Anyone in need who would like to attend the dinner is asked to call in advance, so the group can be sure to prepare enough food. To RSVP, those with phone service are asked to call 215-262-0419 and leave a message with their initials and the number of people who are coming, Kahlenberg said.
The church also has a volunteer who can arrange transportation for guests who need it.
No names are necessary, Kahlenberg said; the identities of people who want to attend will be kept confidential.
The food will be prepared by the kitchen staff at Wesley Enhanced Living, a senior living center in Doylestown. Kahlenberg's mother, Morgan Pickands, has been working with Wesley Enhanced Living to coordinate the number of meal needed.
For more information, call Kahlenberg at 215-262-0419 or Pickands at 484-744-6519.
