Thanksgiving Jam

Our General Sales Manager, Judy Buddensick, cooks a turkey for the dinner each year for this charity that was started by Rob Levit. The turkeys are donated by Whole Foods.

The "turkey cookers" cook the birds at their homes and deliver them to the Eastport Methodist Church, which donates the room for this use. Mr. Levit has a few restaurants that donate the side dishes & desserts for the feast. Members of the church, Creating Communities, The Eastport Civic Association, and employees of Sysco Foods volunteer to set up, serve and clean up.

After dinner, all the children take their turn at giving back to the community by making holiday cards, greetings, and crafts that are delivered to the elderly at a local nursing home.

All photos were taken and submitted by Judy Buddensick, an annual contributor to this charity event.
