TOPEKA, Kan. (WIBW) – The Islamic Center of Topeka is helping to make sure every family has a meal on the table this Thanksgiving.
For the sixth year in a row, the center partnered with Let’s Help to give turkeys and the fixings to community members.
“We wouldn’t be able to do this, in this magnitude, if we didn’t have partners like this,” Jennifer Loeffler, executive director of Let’s Help, said.
Members of the Islamic Center spent Saturday morning handing out meal kits complete with a turkey, box of stuffing, and cans of green beans and corn to families in need, while wishing them a happy holiday season.
“We see the people smiling and happy, so we feel good,” Rehan Reza, president of the Islamic Center of Topeka, said. “They’re going to have a nice meal with their family.”
In all, the center donated 150 Thanksgiving dinners to be given out Saturday.
