Northcott Neighborhood House Thanksgiving dinner giveaway

Many community organizations in Milwaukee offered Thanksgiving dinners to those in need this holiday season.

Thursday, the Northcott Neighborhood House was ready to fill hearts and plates with its third Thanksgiving dinner giveaway.

A total of 1,000 bags were packed by volunteers with chicken, mashed potatoes and gravy, corn, rolls, and pound cake for dessert. Daddy's Soul Food and Grille supplied the meal, which is enough to feed a family of four – it just needs to be reheated.

"We want people to feel pride. It’s very difficult for anyone to come in and ask for any kind of help," said Elizabeth Coggs,  so we always must treat our fellow man and our fellow woman with pride and dignity because we all could be one paycheck away from whatever, whatever so this morning we want people to come in and feel good," said Elizabeth Coggs, director operations and Juneteenth at Northcott.

The Northcott Neighborhood House hopes they were able to feed around 4,000 people. There were also 200 individual meals available for people. The giveaway took place from 8 a.m. until noon Thursday.
