On Sunday, November 19, DOROT hosted its 36th annual Thanksgiving banquet and meal delivery. Over the course of a the day, more than 300 volunteers ensured that seniors across the city could enjoy a Thanksgiving meal in good company.

The banquet, held at Congregation Rodeph Sholom, welcomed 300 older adults for singing, dancing, and of course, eating. Guests celebrated with old and new friends alike while enjoying the festivities. Those too frail to attend the banquet received hot meals delivered to their homes by over 200 volunteers who stayed for an extended visit.

Said one senior, “I’ve been to 27 banquets, and each one gets better. Best day of the year.”
