Thanksgiving Dinner (home delivery)

November 22, 2018 all-day

Thanksgiving Holiday Dinner:

The American Legion, Post 3, will again deliver free Thanksgiving Holiday Dinners to the elderly, shut-ins, veterans, and needy in the Cape Ann area on Thanksgiving, Thursday, November 22, 2018. We will be serving Gloucester, Rockport, Manchester, Essex and Ipswich. The American Legion Post No. 3’s mission is to insure that no one goes without a holiday meal on this special day. Every year, many of our recipients are veterans and/or their families. Often, the only individuals that these “special citizens” see on these holidays are our drivers, who bring not only an outstanding holiday meal but also a cheery greeting and smile. Our goal is to serve as many meals as we can. In light of continuing economic hardship and cutbacks, the demand and requests for support continues to rise and we want to meet it!

Volunteer Servers and Drivers are also needed for Thanksgiving Day. We will need Servers from 10:00am until approximately 12:45pm and drivers from 10:15am until all of the meals have been delivered.

How to order and volunteer:

  1. Call 978-283-9710 after 3:00pm (and leave a message)
  2. Call 978-283-7117 anytime (and leave a message)

Please make sure to clearly give your name, address, phone number and number of meals.
