LAFAYETTE, Ind. (WLFI)—It's no secret that Thanksgiving is going to look different for many families this year.
That's why Lafayette Urban Ministry (LUM) is reminding people of its Thanksgiving dinner. Normally the dinner is held inside a gymnasium where families can sit and enjoy Thanksgiving favorites.
This year due to COVID-19 the dinner will not only be outside but it'll be a to-go dinner. Executive Director for LUM, Wes Tillett, says the organization last year served nearly 900 families.
He said it's important to be there for families during this time when many are feeling alone.
"We want to continue to let the community know that Lafayette Urban Ministry is here to serve the community," said Tillett. "We want to make an impact we want to give back hope and self-respect we want to honor human dignity."
The feast will run from noon to 2 p.m. It'll be out of the 8th Street entrance near the Central Presbyterian Church in Lafayette. LUM is asking that only one person from each family needs to arrive to collect food for each family member.
In addition to its Thanksgiving dinner, LUM is also holding a Turkey Trot 5K. For information on that click here.
