Sunday, November 21, 2021

The Boston Globe's Metro Section featured the scene at Catholic Charities of Boston's Yawkey Center during the 3,300 Thanksgiving meal distribution event on November 20. The event was part of a larger coordinated effort by United Way, where approximately 18,000 Thanksgiving meals were given to people in need.

Quoted in the article was Mildred Lee, 85, of Dorchester. “It means a lot to me because it helps with my grocery money. I’m on a fixed income,” Lee said.

Yawkey was the largest distribution center of the more than 30 sites across Eastern Massachusetts. Read the full story below or in the Globe here.
