The purpose of the 14th Annual Free Thanksgiving Dinner is to serve our low income elderly and families who are struggling financially.  Dinner is served from 3 to 5pm in the American Legion building behind the Lions Den.  Dine in, carry out, or the meal can be delivered, free of charge.   Delivery is offered in Haleyville, Double Springs, Nauvoo and Lynn.  

To schedule delivery please call any of the following volunteers:  

Shelia Brimer       269-1827                       Brenda Wright      494-2011

Belinda Kelly        269-2176                       Jennie Brimer        269-3290

Betty Waldrop     269-6846                       Linda Bumpers      269-3653

This dinner is not sponsored by any single church or organization.   It is 100% funded by donations from local businesses and individuals.   Nell Cole,  who founded this project almost fourteen years ago,  asks for your help.  The dinner is expected to serve over 1000, plus, this year, Mrs. Cole plans to buy Christmas gifts for as many foster children as possible and to take a gift to the residents of the local nursing home.

Mrs. Cole  is asking volunteers to solicit contributions from your church, Sunday school class, co-workers, and/or friends and family.    Funding for this project is urgent.   To donate by check, please make payable to Nell Cole or to the South Haleyille Church of God (Mrs. Cole's home church).  Donations are tax deductible.   To arrange for your contribution to be picked up,  please call Linda Bumpers 269-3653.
