The 7th Annual Thanksgiving Luncheon was held on Wednesday, November 26, 2014 from 11am – 2pm at First Baptist Oviedo in the Christian Life Center in Oviedo, FL. We served 489 people from our community and over 100 volunteers a traditional Thanksgiving dinner with all the trimmings, including desert. A total of 232 people in need received free groceries. As part of our traditional charity giveaway, 20 families received Thanksgiving Family Baskets that included a free turkey, donated by Boys Town of Central Florida. Our charity giveaway also included 12 free turkeys given away to those in need donated by the GFWC Oviedo Woman’s Club and individual donors. The atmosphere of the luncheon was spiritually uplifting with beautiful Christian music provided by Tommy Mullins and Lisa Young.
Special thanks to First Baptist Oviedo and all their support for sponsoring our annual event! We also would like to thank all of the volunteers for their wonderful efforts who helped make this event a tremendous success! A very big thank you to all the volunteers from First Baptist Oviedo and the community who cooked turkeys, side dishes, and deserts. A heartwarming thank you to GFWC Oviedo Woman’s Club for cooking delicious deserts. Volunteer groups who participated in the event this year were from First Baptist Oviedo, River of Life Church, University of Central Florida, and Community Volunteers from The Forgotten Ones, Inc.
