ST. CHARLES—Lazarus House invites the community to its annual Thanksgiving Feast.

The event will take place from 11:30 a.m. to 2 p.m. on Thanksgiving Day, Thursday, Nov. 25, at the Tri Cities Salvation Army, 1710 S. 7th Ave., St. Charles. Dining will begin at noon.

“The feast has become a tradition for the community to sit alongside our guests and clients to share fellowship and a meal,” executive director Darlene Marcusson said. “The feast was established for folks who are homeless or alone for Thanksgiving as well as those who simply want to add more meaning to their holiday.”

For those able to cook, a dish to pass is welcome. Food should arrive between 11:30 and 11:45 a.m. in a disposable container and ready to serve. Potato and vegetable dishes and supplies are desirable. Details are posted at Let the shelter know what dish you are bringing in a courtesy e-mail to
