This Thanksgiving many came out to St. Vincent de Paul to give thanks and give back.

“We just have so many blessings and we just want our son to know how fortunate we are,” Lauren Britt said.

The Britt family was one of many families who took time out of their holiday to serve food to those in need.

“We try to strive every day to live and teach our son the most important things in life, which is to serve our community,” Joe Britt, Lauren’s husband, said.

Hot food wasn’t the only thing given out, canned goods and clothes were distributed.

“It’s a way to give back to the community,” Michael Acaldo, President of the St. Vincent de Paul charity, said.”

Patrick Christopher says he loves when Thanksgiving comes around because it gives him a chance to catch up with his loved ones and get a warm meal.

“I don’t have any family,” Christopher said. “I just have loved ones and friends so to see them it makes my heart smile.”

Overall everyone said they had a good time and were happy to stuff their bellies with turkey and dressing.
