Families give thanks by giving back on Thanksgiving

Thursday, December 13, 2012 by BONNIE LEE STRUNK Special to The Press in Local News

Fawn Albert from Schnecksville thought Thanksgiving should be about more than just eating.

So last year on the holiday, she rounded up her husband and two children and showed up to volunteer at the soup kitchen in St. Paul's Lutheran Church, Allentown, which serves free meals to the needy and homeless.

She recalls saying to her family, "Let's truly give thanks in a better way."

Back again this Thanksgiving, the Albert family kept busy waiting on tables and delivering turkey dinners to the hundreds of guests who showed up.
