Pastor Brenda Adkins, her husband, John, and their army of volunteers expect to serve dinner for 1,000 this Thanksgiving and have every family leave with a bag of groceries and toiletries so plans already are in high gear for their Herculean effort.
Monetary donations will be put toward food and other costs associated with the Day of Joy 2018, to be held Nov. 17 at Wexler-Grant School. Tickets are needed to get in and the majority of tickets are given through the city’s school system. Brenda Adkins said they also need volunteers for the event.
Those who would like to donate, but can’t make the storefront drive, can mail them in care of Brenda Adkins, or Divine Will Fellowship Inc., to 330 Munson St., New Haven 06511. Anyone with questions can call Adkins at 203-802-0747.
