Circle T Grillin' of Selmer prepared about 700 plates for Thanksgiving.
“It's low,” Circle T Grillin' owner Stacy Thompson said. “Last year, we did about 1,800 but I think with COVID-19 going on, a lot of people stayed home.”
About 50 volunteers began working around 6 a.m. and worked until 6 p.m.
“It was a full day,” Thompson said. “We appreciate the people who prayed for us. We appreciate the people who delivered for us.
“There were a lot of pick-ups and a lot of deliveries.”
One team of volunteers worked at Selmer First Baptist Church and another worked at the Selmer Civic Center.
“We had lots of fun,” Thompson said. “We stopped and prayed. We had prayer at both places. We had Santa and Mrs. Claus came by and we appreciate that.”
Cathy Willcutts and Monique Villere – along with about 10 others - volunteered at the Civic Center.
“I heard they were doing a Thanksgiving dinner for people in the community,” Willcutts said. “God has really blessed me and I think a Thanksgiving meal would help people and lift their spirits.”
