Volunteers now accepting requests for Annual Community Thanksgiving meals

Oak Hill, WV (WOAY) – Following a two-year hiatus, volunteers announce the Community Thanksgiving Meal will resume providing free meals to those in need for the holiday.

Participants must request orders no later than October 31 via email at communitythanksgivingmeal@outlook.com. Residents can also call 304-741-9123 and leave a message including their name, number of meals, and pickup location.

Volunteers will retrieve meal requests daily and ask the community only to leave one message per order. Unfortunately, due to COVID-19 precautions, there will not be a dine-in or home delivery option available for this year.
