Everyone deserves to have a hot turkey dinner on Thanksgiving Day. Several folks from the Council on Aging In-Home Services Committee and the Chatham County Sheriff’s Office felt just this way. In a collaborative venture, the two agencies have enlisted the help of several groups to provide meals for 50 Chatham County senior residents. The In-Home Services Committee provided the people, addresses and other logistical information for the event.

Last Thanksgiving was the first CCSO Thanksgiving meal drive, and the Sheriff’s Office is please to be providing the same community service this Thanksgiving.

The meal drive has received private donations of 15 turkeys, side dishes, desserts, carryout plates and utensils. Service organizations in the community have offered their facilities as central assembly centers for volunteers to put together the meals. Volunteers from the Chatham County Sheriff’s Office have agreed to cook the turkeys, carve the turkeys, and assemble the plates on Thanksgiving morning. Deputies from the Sheriff’s Office will deliver the meals to the seniors that reside across the 707 square miles of Chatham County.

It is the intention of the Chatham County Sheriff’s Office, the Council on Aging and other agencies in the county to continue and expand on these collaborative ventures to reach out to more of our citizens.

For more information, please call the Jill Jacobson at the Chatham County Sheriff’s Office 919-548-2881(cell) or 919-542-2811 ext: 212.
