Thanksgiving Dinner for 370

1479262_702165289794006_1728249164_nThat’s right… 370 seats were filled last Monday by staff, kids, families, and volunteers all intertwined into UrbanPromise.  While the room was filled, it felt less like a crazy party and more like a big family meal with all of the extended family.  Thanks to the Resurrection Center for opening their doors to us.  They have been so gracious and helpful in allowing us to use their space. Darion is a man who works there, gathered ALL the chairs, and handed them off to Dan Hamill, who managed the dining room and servers, and has done so for the last 5 years.

If you or your church would like to get involved with one of our family like events,
contact Samantha Hindman (Church Relations Coordinator).
