Ministerial Association thanks volunteers and community

The West River Ministerial Association would like to thank the many volunteers who made possible the community Thanksgiving meal hosted by Holy Trinity Catholic Church in Hettinger. Many volunteers worked together to feed the bodies and souls of 124 people on Thanksgiving Day.

A big thank you also to the area churches and the many generous individuals who donated money to pay for the traditional homemade meal. Your extravagant generosity will be paid forward through the healthy surplus of funds you provided. That money will be used to feed local school children in need of food through the weekend backpack food program. It will also provide short-term crisis assistance to under-resourced people in our community. Thank you all for bearing witness to the biblical mandate of feeding the hungry and assisting those in need.
