At the heart of the Community Thanksgiving Project lies a simple yet profound mission: to ensure that no one has to spend Thanksgiving alone and that every family and individual in need can enjoy a hearty Thanksgiving meal. Our project brings together the spirit of community, compassion, and giving, celebrating the essence of Thanksgiving.
Our journey began in 2013, with a passionate individual, John Williams, who cooked all the turkeys himself and, alongside a few close friends and family members, managed delivery efforts of 150 meals. In 2017, the Rotary Club of Lafayette joined us as cook team volunteers. In 2018, Taco Sisters took charge of preparing our turkeys. In 2019, The 705 Group stepped in, purchasing supplies and providing prep volunteers, refining our efforts.
The spirit of our mission, "Helping Others Help Others," drives us to expand our project and serve more throughout Acadiana. Our partnerships have grown, enabling us to reach even more individuals in need. In New Iberia, we expanded to include additional sites and convenient drive-through pickups. On the Northside of Lafayette, our team and satellite locations grew. Our team in Opelousas found new partners, leading to a broader distribution.
Love Of People Community Thanksgiving is on a mission once more!
