Baptist church distributes turkeys ahead of Thanksgiving holiday

PITTSBURGH — Bumper to bumper, a line of cars were waiting with their trunks popped open and thanks in their heart. The Mount Ararat Baptist Church held a drive-thru food distribution for the Thanksgiving holiday.

“We’ve got volunteers that will put food right in your trunk, close it up, you go right on. We don’t have any physical contact,” said Rev. Dr. William Curtis.

In the past, the church prepared a hot Thanksgiving meal for families to enjoy inside. But the pandemic has caused them to find a new and safer way to serve others this year. They were able to help nearly 500 families.

“At least we are able to see each other over the holiday season and at the same time we can make sure we don’t exacerbate the suffering of this season by persons hot having what they need to have a good Thanksgiving,” Curtis said.

People received cornbread, stuffing, vegetables, cake mix and a turkey.
