State Of Emergency Port Huron Seeking To Help Local Families At Thanksgiving

Last year five families were provided Thanksgiving Dinner by a Facebook Group called “State Of Emergency Port Huron”.  This year, they set a goal to double that number to ten, and have already signed up fourteen families in need.  Edric Eiermann is the administrator of the group and he says they will be collecting donations of food this Friday, November 9th between 5:30 p.m. and 7:00 p.m. at the Spirit Shoppe across from Lakeside Beach.  There will be hot chocolate provided for those who drop off food.  Edric says the Facebook page is where you start, by asking to join.  Once you have joined the group, you can nominate someone to receive the meal.  On the Facebook page you will also find the Thanksgiving menu request for food to donate.   If you would like to volunteer to deliver the food the Monday before Thanksgiving, please note that as well.   Eiermann says he came up with the idea of Thanksgiving meals to give to those in our community who might have fallen on hard times.
