How an Oak Park funeral home brought people together for Thanksgiving

The pandemic created a lot of financial difficulties and made it difficult for people to put food on the table this holiday season. Some community organizers in Sacramento’s Oak Park district have set up to meet the challenge of giving the neighborhood a happy Thanksgiving. Ginger Brown, owner of the Thompson Rose Chapel, said: “We can take a little from ourselves and give it to others.” This is the third year that the Thompson Rose Chapel has prepared a Thanksgiving meal for the neighborhood. “Currently, the economy is all volatile and food prices are high, so it’s a great opportunity to do something useful to the community,” said Harrison Anderson, Chapel’s marketing director. “Today, all this is happening all over the world. It’s important that people know they are loved.” Despite this year’s highs, organizers are free at least 100 times. I prepared enough meals for my meal. The chapel operates as a funeral hall, and Brown says it is also open as a community resource. “During this time, it was a little difficult for us all, as the family was experiencing the loss of dying alone,” Brown said. “Especially at this time of year, we need to be there together for each other.” People from all disciplines came to get a hot meal. “Oh, I love it. It’s positive,” said his sister taking care of their sick mother in Southern California, so would otherwise have spent Thanksgiving alone. Longtime resident Patrick Moore said. “It’s very good that they’re doing this,” said a young man who only wanted to be identified as Bradley. “Especially for the number of people on the streets who can’t eat here every day. We appreciate it.” Volunteer Patricia Jones is a community of people experiencing homelessness nearby. Packed a box of food for delivery to. She said the funeral hall has helped feed the group for the past three years. “I enjoy it,” Jones said. “Some of them aren’t there by choice, you know.” KCRA3 told the pickup driver. “It makes a lot of sense to the community,” said Teresa Epps. “They don’t have to struggle to eat today.”
