    LITTLE ROCK, Ark. (KTHV) -- A Little Rock church is asking all local organizations who reach out to those in need to work with them providing a family meal.

    First Assembly of God and Metro Worship Center is hosting their 16th annual Thanksgiving Outreach on Nov. 20 at the fair grounds in the Hall of Industry from 5:30 p.m. to 7:30 p.m.

    They want other organizations to be present so they can meet the homeless and low income people so they can get to know you and your services.

    If you care to help, your help will be welcomed. Last year they had more than 300 volunteers serving meals to about 600 people, some homeless, some from low income areas within Little Rock.

    There will be haircuts, flu shots and health screening, employment counseling, legal service and a judge, clothes lockers, kids' activities and prayer.

    They will be providing dinner and give them a boxed Thanksgiving dinner for Thursday to take home which will include a turkey, mac & cheese, corn, beans, cranberry sauce, and pumpkin pie. They will also be giving blankets, underwear, toiletries, and socks.

    They will be bussing in from more than 10 locations throughout the city, some for the homeless, such as Salvation Army, under the Broadway bridge, and the bus station and other areas such as Kanis Point, St. John, Sunset and Woodhaven Apartment complexes. 

    For information about Metro's ministries, contact Jay Martin at (501) 951-1333. To RSVP, please contact Herb Strehl, (501) 612-4137.
