Kansas City, Missouri — The Kansas City Metro family received holiday cheers thanks to a local non-profit organization.
“Today is the second day of distribution,” Ryan Hadnar, executive director of Delarum Community Services, said at a drive-through event on Saturday.
And volunteers were working hard to make their faces smile during the coronavirus pandemic.
“People are coming by car and feeding people for Thanksgiving, and turkey is one of them,” said McJones, who volunteered with his family.
For those in line, Thanksgiving and Christmas Day can be thought of as one weekend.
"We're distributing a full Thanksgiving meal," Hudnall said. "Christmas gifts, wrapping paper to equip families to have their holiday celebrations in home."
Cars were filled with items that many families now find difficult to buy. But with the help of nonprofits and volunteers, there is something to be thankful for this holiday season.
“So why it’s important for us to do these kinds of events, we have these milestones that we remember each other,” Hadnar said. “We will build a city in the hope that this will be possible.”
Delaram is still accepting donations because the organizers have said they have to do a lot of things in advance, such as buying food and clothing. Money helps cover the cost of hosting an event.
