ALBANY, N.Y. – The Equinox is preparing for the annual Thanksgiving Day Community Dinner.

On Thursday, the Equinox will hold its 44th annual dinner which is expected to feed 10,000 Capital Region residents who are homeless or are in difficult circumstances. Some people can't get out of their homes and some have no family.

The Development Director for the Equinox, Christina Rajotte is heading up the dinner. She says they still need help.

"We need about 150 more drivers," said Rajotte. "And if they wanna drive, the best way to reach us is email us at 'tvolunteer@equinoxinc.org'. We're telling them to email is, because the phones will be inundated, and we're afraid we won't get to their calls. By email, we certainly can be reached and we want to make sure we provide them with that opportunity and also that we can work with them to make this a good holiday." 

Delivery takes place between 9 a.m. and 1 p.m. Thursday. Then the sit-down dinner will be held at the First Presbyterian Church on State and Willet Streets from 1 p.m.  to 4 p.m.

If you or someone you know needs a meal, you can contact the Equinox at (518)-434-0131.

The leftovers from the Thanksgiving meal will be donated to area food pantries.

The meal is funded through donations of cash, food, and services by individuals or groups.
