Get a hot meal on Thanksgiving Day from St. Vincent de Paul
BATON ROUGE, La. (WAFB) - Thanksgiving is a huge holiday across the Capital Region, but not everyone is fortunate enough to celebrate.
St. Vincent de Paul is aiming to change that for thousands of families to make sure they have a holiday meal in traditional fashion.
Michael Acaldo, President and CEO of St. Vincent de Paul, said they are preparing to serve over 2500 meals across four different locations in Baton Rouge on Thanksgiving.
“Community has unity in it, and that’s what it’s all about,” Acaldo said.
Acaldo explained the impact of giving back during these moments.
“A community can be measured by a lot of things, but how it responds to our neighbors in need, that’s something that’s powerful,” Acaldo said.
