Community Thanksgiving Dinner

Every year on Thanksgiving Day at 1:00pm United Parish in Brookline hosts a full sit-down Thanksgiving meal for up to 175 people.  The meal and service are all provided by volunteers in the church and in the community, and some food local organizations.  The meal is offered free of charge. 

The church office does ask for an RSVP to give those who work tirelessly on this project sufficient information about the number of people to expect for the meal.  The church office is receiving RSVP's now.  You can call 617-277-6860 x7 or email to RSVP or volunteer to help out that day.

Once again, the 4th and 5th grade Church School class is planning to make pumpkin bread for our Thanksgiving Dinner guests. We will be collecting spare change after worship on Sunday, October 29 and November 5. We will use the change to buy supplies for baking the bread. We look forward to your support!

It’s time to sign up for the annual Community Thanksgiving Dinner we host on Thanksgiving Day. We extend a community-wide invitation to this annual dinner, which brings in around 175 people every year. For many, this is their only chance at a family-style traditional Thanksgiving dinner. Therefore, we need many volunteers and lots of food donations. To volunteer, sign up here, or contact Sasha at or call 617-277-6860 x7, or speak to her during Coffee Hour.
