Chilton’s Thanksgiving Day Express Cancelled Due to COVID-19 Pandemic
Chilton, WI – October 27, 2020 – With the health and safety of individuals receiving meals, volunteers, and the community as the top priority, organizers of the Thanksgiving Day Express have made the very difficult decision to cancel this year’s Thanksgiving Day event. The public volunteer cold/hot meal packaging event held at the Chilton Eagles Club Thanksgiving morning is cancelled.
Many options were considered, but Thanksgiving Day Express organizers were not confident with full certainty that they could safely fulfill their mission of providing a “Warm Meal and a Kind Word” to meal recipients, as well safeguard the large gathering of volunteers where social distancing is not possible.
For 37 years, Thanksgiving Day Express has prepared and delivered more than 14,250 meals to the elderly and individuals in need within Chilton, New Holstein, Kiel, Stockbridge, Hilbert, St. Anna, Potter, Reedsville, Brillion, St. Nazianz, Valders, and rural areas in between.
Organizers are very grateful for the time and effort, donated food and pies, and monetary donations from so many volunteers, businesses, and community organizations in prior years. We have appreciated your wonderful acts of kindness and community goodwill, and are hopeful we can welcome everyone back safely to our annual event on Thanksgiving – November 25, 2021.
