Hundreds of those who may not be as fortunate, were provided a warm thanksgiving meal by the generous hands at Christ's Table.
Executive Director Keely Warden said they started early this morning and there was a special moment at the start of serving meals.
"It was really neat,” said Warden. “Our volunteers wanted to go out into the dining room and join hands with our guests and we said a morning prayer, which was absolutely wonderful and just thanking God for everything that we have been blessed with today, turkeys, and pumpkin pies and volunteers that want to help and most importantly our guests."
Warden also said there was an outpouring of help from volunteers this thanksgiving and everyone was having a great time eating and celebrating.
"It's overwhelming, I think for our volunteers and for our guests. We have done some really special things for the guests today and one guy just looked at me with big tears in his eyes and said 'This is such a happy day for me!' That makes it all worth it.”
