Even though Thanksgiving is still a week away, dinner preparations are in full swing at Spokane's Women and Children's Free Restaurant (WCFR).
WCFR will host their 17th Annual Community Thanksgiving Dinner at the Rogers High School Commons on Saturday, November 22 from 4:00 p.m.-7:00 p.m. The event is free to attend and everyone is welcome.
On Thursday morning, about a dozen volunteers gathered at WFCR to carve 150 turkeys for Saturday’s event. These volunteers consist of Spokane area caterers and chefs who posses the knowledge needed to properly carve the birds.
WFCR Office Manager and Volunteer Coordinator, Karen Orlando, said people who plan to attend can expect to enjoy a free, traditional, and nutritious Thanksgiving dinner.
