Over the last 13 years, Community Transformation, Inc. (CTI) & Word Doers Ministries have been able to serve over 9,000 meals to those in need in Thomasville and Thomas County on Thanksgiving. For the last five years, Project Backyard has partnered with CTI & Word Doers to serve and distribute more than 5,500 of those meals. It is our hope and prayer to serve at least 1,200 people this year, but we can’t do it without YOU!

We invite you to join us in serving those in need on Thanksgiving Day (Thursday, November 23rd) at the Thomasville High School Cafeteria.  Below are the details you need to know:
