Good Hope and Zion don't stop at Thanksgiving

They serve up community meals every second and last Thursday of the month at Zion from 4:30 to 6 p.m..
They host coffee every Thursday at 9:30 a.m. (not on Thanksgiving).
They host an all-day breakfast at Good Hope on Shrove Tuesday each year.
They also pack up “Weekend bags of love” on the last Thursday of every month.
“We can’t afford to feed the entire town,” organizer Joyce Frenz said. “But we try to help feed our neighborhood.”
Frenz said they also have a program titled “Loads of Love” where they randomly deliver small bags of quarters to area laundromats to help people get their laundry done.
Donations are always welcomed, Frenz said, and they can be given by contacting her directly at 724-699-0861.
