Many Capital Region volunteers are already hard at work to make sure that everyone has a Thanksgiving meal this Thursday. The 48th annual Equinox Thanksgiving Dinner is Thursday and volunteers have been hard at work since Sunday. Thousands of volunteers will help carve nearly 13,000 pounds of turkey. They will also serve meals at the Equinox Community Dinner, and even make home deliveries to those in need on Thanksgiving Day.

These volunteers will serve nearly 10,000 meals to families throughout the Capital Region and give hundreds of hours of their time. Volunteers are utilized for everything from cooking, serving and even delivering the meals to those who would otherwise not have a Thanksgiving meal.

If you would like to volunteer your time, you can contact the Equinox. If you are in need of a meal, you can contact the Thanksgiving Hotline at (518) 434-0131. The dinner will be located at the First Presbyterian Church in Albany from 1 – 4 p.m. on Thanksgiving Day.
