Over the last 14 years, Community Transformation, Inc. (CTI) & Word Doers Ministries have been able to serve over 10,000 meals to those in need in Thomasville and Thomas County on Thanksgiving. For the last six years, Project Backyard has partnered with CTI & Word Doers to serve and distribute more than 6,500 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 22nd) at the Thomasville High School Cafeteria.  Below are the details you need to know:

Volunteer Sign Ups:

Thank you for your willingness to serve with us this Thanksgiving. Volunteer sign ups online are now closed; however, if you would like to serve with us on Thanksgiving Day, we would love to have you join us! All you have to do is show up to the Thomasville High School Cafeteria (315 S. Hansell St., Thomasville, GA) at 11:30am on Thursday, Nov. 22nd and we will give you a volunteer assignment based on the needs at that time. When you arrive, you will see signs that direct you to the volunteer check-in table, where you will receive your volunteer assignment and further instructions.
