We're just about a week away from Thanksgiving .
and people in Onalaska are hard at work getting ready
for their community dinner.
Organizers say they still could use donations and
volunteers to help cover all of the responsibilities
of next week's event.
This will be the 6th year Onalaska will hold its own
community dinner .
and they expect to serve about 12-hundred meals at
the armory next week.
They'll also offer takeout meals and deliveries for
people who are unable to leave their homes.
Organizers say the dinner brings multiple benefits
to the community.
If we didn't hold this event, there are several families
that wouldn't be able to celebrate thanksgiving together
with their friends, family members and neighbors.
And the other part is a lot of the community members
like to get together and say hey, we live in a great
city and a great place so they just celebrate the
fact that Onalaska is such a great community.
