700 Turkey Dinners to be Delivered to People in Need During the Holidays
MYRTLE BEACH, SC – (December 22, 2010) – Chef Peter Gennaro and his crew are busy at the Hilton Myrtle Beach Resort as they prepare to roast 700 turkeys and complete fixings for the Feed A Family program. The program, organized by volunteer Abe Safa, provides complete holiday dinners to local families that are delivered on Christmas Eve.
The economy has continued to be challenging for many, and 100 more families will receive dinners this year. The all-volunteer committee raises the money to cover the costs of the holiday meals, and the Hilton crew volunteers the labor to prepare the dinners.
Safa and his volunteer team have relied on Gennaro and the Hilton crew to prepare the turkey dinners for the past three years. In addition to turkeys, the holiday meals are accompanied by three side dishes, cranberry sauce and homemade pie.
“It’s one of the most meaningful programs we do,” says Gennaro. “We know our work will directly impact 700 families this holiday season.”
