A South Albany church is leading several organizations and businesses in hosting a community Thanksgiving lunch tomorrow at the Carver Teen Center on South McKinley Street.  The Center of Refuge Church is hosting the T.E.A.M. Community Thanksgiving Dinner for the tenth year in a row.   

They say this is a celebration of Thanksgiving for all. "Everyone," said Ava O'Neal T.E.A.M. Coordinator. "Everyone is our entire community.  They are invited to come, to share a full hot Thanksgiving meal. We are also doing great free giveaways for the family."

City Commissioner B. J. Fletcher, Golden Corral, Carter's Fried Chicken, and a number of other restaurants are donating to the T.E.A.M. Thanksgiving Dinner. It's from noon to 2:00 Tuesday at the Carver Teen Center.

The Albany Police Department will host their fifth annual Thanksgiving Dinner tomorrow night at the Albany Civic Center, starting at 5:00. The food is provided by sponsors and APD.  

 Officers say this dinner is not only to feed people in need, but it's a chance for the police to give back to the entire city. "Our purpose is to feed the community.  To give the community an opportunity to come out and fellowship with the Police Department.  And just let them know we appreciate everything that they do for us. Because without them we couldn't do our job," said Sgt. Kawaski Barnes Albany Police.

The Police fed more than 1,100 people last year.     They expect more this year.

You're welcome to enjoy the meal Tuesday starting at 5:00PM at the Albany Civic Center.
