‘Come Give Thanks with Us Dinner’ feeds Natchitoches community

ComeGiveThanks-2017 (2)

Phillip Jean-Louis Jr. and Carlos Hartwell and a crew of volunteers served up 150 meals at the 4th annual “Come Give Thanks With Us Dinner.” The community service event, part of the NSF graduates’ Gloria Project Family Integrated Services, was held Nov. 23 at the John Below Community Center. Goodie bags filled with snacks and 150 boxes of sausage were past out to the community.

“Kids were playing in the playground and everyone had good food and fellowship. You see the genuine smiles on their faces,” said Jean-Louis. “It makes you take a step back and realize God’s work. Everything turned out amazing.”
