Days until Thanksgiving, the coronavirus surging, and good Samaritans stuck at home. There may be fewer volunteers but the work is still getting done, and from a distance. We hear from Bea Gaddy Family Centers director Cynthia Brooks, who has devised new ways to provide thousands of people Thanksgiving dinner.

Visit here to volunteer, visit here to donate.

And Ashley Pressman, from the Jewish Volunteer Connection tells us about the ‘Casserole Challenge’ -- a safe way for people to help others during the holiday. Visit here for more info.  For more info about Jayden Freidman's Thanksgiving Bag Lunch event, email junkit411@gmail.com or call 410-356-5865.
