One local organization participated in a yearly tradition ahead of Thanksgiving.
Feed my Sheep served Thanksgiving dinner to the homeless and needy today at their location in Gulfport.
Volunteers from Treasure Bay Casino were on hand to serve all the things that make Thanksgiving dinner great like turkey, dressing, green bean casserole, and different types of pies.
Feed my Sheep Director Randy Brownlee says the dinner always gets a positive reception. “The people that normally eat with us that come for Thanksgiving, they know that they’re going to get a good meal and they just enjoy it very much. They usually thank us real well. We just, you know, proud that we can be here to serve it for them.”
Around 250 to 300 Thanksgiving meals were prepared in house today.
