Volunteer Sign-Up

29th Annual Cherokee Thanksgiving

Cherokee Thanksgiving provides free meals on Thanksgiving Day for those in our community who would otherwise not have a Thanksgiving meal. We focus not only on those who are economically disadvantaged, but those who are serving the community and are not able to have a meal with their own family (emergency service providers, care facility workers, etc.).
