2017 Community Thanksgiving Dinner

Our 34th annual Thanksgiving Dinner was a huge success! We welcomed nearly 200 guests from the Brookline area for a traditional meal. We couldn't have done it without the help of 75 volunteers and the coordination of the planning committee. We are grateful to all who donated food, supplies, decorations, and their time. Special thanks to Brookline Food Co-Op, Boy Scout Troop 6, Saturday's/Sunday's Bread, Brookline Food Pantry, Whole Foods in Brookline, and Wegmans in Chestnut Hill. Thanks to the Brookline Public Libraries, Housing Authority, Senior Center, Council on Aging, Mental Health Center, and Center Communities in Brookline for helping to spread the word about the meal as well.

All set up and waiting for volunteers and guests to arrive.
