Turkey dinner vouchers offered
Praise Chapel program to feed 100 families

KINGMAN - Praise Chapel will distribute 100 vouchers for Thanksgiving dinners to needy families through this week.

The vouchers can be redeemed at both Safeway locations the week of Thanksgiving for a holiday dinner that includes a 10- to 12-pound turkey, mashed potatoes, gravy, cranberry sauce, dinner rolls and an 8-inch pumpkin pie.

Tracie Padilla of Praise Chapel said the church elected to hand out the vouchers versus providing frozen turkeys since many of the people that they serve are hospice patients, families living in motels or others without the means to cook the meal themselves. She added that several locations around town would be providing dinners the night of Thanksgiving.

This is the fourth year the church has distributed the dinners to local families as part of its Benevolence Program, which provides year-round assistance for things such as utility bills and prescription medicines.

The church distributed 85 dinners last year and has around 100 to give away this year. At $39.99 a dinner, that comes to about $4,000 needed to fund the effort, which is assisted by Good Sams and agencies that are a part of the Kingman Community Network Coalition.

The only requirements for the vouchers is that there are at least three members in the families, since the dinners feed between six to eight people, and that the family has a demonstrated financial need.

Families are asked to come to the church at 419 Harrison Street from 8 to 11:30 a.m. to fill out a brief application. Those with questions may call (928) 753-1909.

For the first time in my life, I would qualify for one of these vouchers. Sad....
