Elementary school hosts Thanksgiving dinner

Posted:

WATERLOO (KWWL) -- Lincoln Elementary in Waterloo served up a community Thanksgiving dinner Sunday afternoon.

The dinner was open to all members of the community including low-income families.

The planning committee reached out to local sponsors who provided everything from the turkey and potatoes down to the forks and napkins.

"There is actually a large group of us in charge of the whole dinner as a whole and we broke up into committees for things like mashed potatoes, turkey, things like that," says Principal Stephanie Mohorn. "We did have several of our partners in education also help with donations as well."

Canned goods were also collected at the elementary school and a bag of the food was given to each family that visited the dinner.
