In true tradition and holiday spirit, the Jessie Trice Community Health Center – Jefferson Reaves House Women’s Residential Program hosted its 15th Annual Thanksgiving Festival on Wednesday, November 18. The free annual festival included a luncheon, heath fair and clothing giveaway.

Gracious donors supplied turkey, ham, dressing, dessert and other delicacies for a pre-Thanksgiving meal for festival attendees. In addition, attendees also received health information from members of the JTCHC team and free clothes during a clothing giveaway.
