Community residents line up in the K.C. cafeteria.
Karns City Communites That Care, a local 501(c)(3) organization served over 650 dinners on Wednesday, November 18th at their 6th annual community thanksgiving dinner. In years past, the organization has done a sit down meal at the Karns City High School cafeteria although with the pandemic they chose to do take- out meals this year. “This year was a little different and we didn’t know what to expect. We wanted to keep this tradition going and let our community know that we are here to support them more now then ever,” said Kayla Smith, Executive Director of Karns City Communities That Care.
The frigid temperatures on Wednesday didn’t seem to effect the outcome much as they had a line of people wrapped around the building. The census of the crowd seemed they were very supportive of the meal and everyone who made it happen. “It takes an army to pull these type of events together and we couldn’t have had a better team. We are very appreciative for all the support. We would like to thank all the volunteers, cafeteria workers, Metz Catering Management, and all who had a hand in making this event a success,” says Smith.
This organization really shows the true importance of what unity is during a difficult time. We commend KC CTC and their dedication to our community.
