Denison Volunteers Serve Up Thanksgiving Meal


DENISON, TX -- Hundreds turned out to a church for a free taste of Thanksgiving, as volunteers served up turkey and all the trimmings.

The lunch was held Saturday at The Refuge church on West Morton Street. Organizer Paula Gurak says that this is the sixth year they have served a meal at thanksgiving, and attendance has grown significantly. Gurak says she is using her ministry Mission Texoma to reach out to people of any faith.

"This is for the community," says Gurak. "This is not only for the homeless, but for the at risk and for anyone who has need, and that's what we're here doing."

Students at Grayson College helped prepare the meal and turkeys were donated by New Beginnings Fellowship in Denison.

Gurak says a Texoma Area Paratransit System bus was also on loan to pick people up at the Texoma Inn on South Austin Avenue and drop them off at the church.
