NORWALK, Conn. — More than 350 people enjoyed turkey, trimmings and a healthy dose of fellowship at the 18th annual Community Thanksgiving Luncheon at Cornerstone Community Church.

"On Sunday, hundreds of residents came out and enjoyed a delicious Thanksgiving meal prepared by the community for the community,” said state Sen. Bob Duff. “It was an honor to serve and be a part of such a great group of volunteers.”

Liz Ward and Amy Silvester coordinated the event, which also included drum circle for kids, music and karaoke.

Participating organizations included Person-to-Person, the Child Guidance Center of Mid-Fairfield County and Cornerstone Community Church.

Undertaking a new initiative this year, the Community Thanksgiving Luncheon distributed over 40 ‘blessing bags,’ the contents of which were donated and assembled by volunteers from the Al-Madany Islamic Center of Norwalk. Each bag, donated by 2-1-1 Connecticut, contained a reusable water bottle, hand and toe warmers, a poncho, lotion, toothbrushes, tissues, wipes, a flashlight, an emergency blanket, a first aid kit and bus tokens.

For the third consecutive year, the Needs Clearing House and Chicken Joe’s of Cos Cob generously donated the majority of the food and volunteers also worked all day to cook and prepare the feast.

Stew Leonard’s donated turkeys, Pepperidge Farm donated stuffing and Boy Scout Troop 19 and the Girl Scouts volunteered.

If you wish to donate to the next event, visit or send a check or money order to" Cornerstone Community Church, 718 West Avenue, Norwalk, Conn. 06850.

Checks should be payable to Cornerstone Community Church with "Thanksgiving Luncheon” in the memo line.
