The number of needy families getting their Thanksgiving meals from Hands of Mercy and the Kingston Police Department grows each year.
It’s that time of year again for the partnership to begin collecting donated food items for the event in earnest.
This year they have set a goal for 800 families.
“Last year we wanted to do 750 and wound up doing 800,” Kingston Police Chief Jim Washam said.
“This year, our goal is 800, but we may do more.”
