Pass the Turkey Please!

By Annika L. A.

As we enter November we all start to get excited about the holidays. There's Christmas, Hanukah, New Year's but first we have Thanksgiving. Now when you think of Thanksgiving you probably think of turkey, relatives coming, pilgrims and a big Thanksgiving diner. That's great but for some people Thanksgiving goes like this. Wondering where the next meal will come from, how they will pay the rent etc.. Sounds pretty bad, huh. But you can help! All you have to do is donate some food to a local soup kitchen, comman pantry, food bank etc. and they will be the most thankful of all. And by the way, pass the turkey!
