This time of year can be more financially challenging, making ends meet with the holiday meals and gift giving added to the regular monthly stresses. It can also be a lonely time for those estranged from their families or away from home. If you find yourself in either or both of these categories, know there is help available and that you don’t have to spend Thanksgiving alone.
If you need help providing a Thanksgiving meal for your family, the United Pentecostal Church of Russellville, located at 316 E. 9th St., is hosting a Thanksgiving Meal Kit Giveaway. Each kit includes a turkey, boxed potatoes, gravy mix, two cans of green beans, two boxes of each mac & cheese and stovetop stuffing, and rolls. The kits will be available on Sunday, Nov. 20, at 3 p.m. There is a limit of one kit per family while supplies last.
