At the end of November, taste buds and tummies anticipate the feast that is the traditional Thanksgiving meal. Unfortunately, not everyone can afford the fall harvest goodies. Each year, Martial Arts Family Fitness (MAFF) helps less fortunate community members enjoy a holiday spread with its Thanksgiving Basket Brigade. Funds are donated to purchase the goodies, and then MAFF members (pictured) volunteer to put together and distribute the full meals — turkey, potatoes, cranberry sauce, stuffing, pies, etc. This year, more than 150 families received Thanksgiving dinners.
