On Monday, Nov. 25 more than 120 members of the Monticello community gathered for the My Brother’s Keeper (MBK) program’s annual Thanksgiving Dinner. Families, friends and businesses enjoyed a free Thanksgiving meal and a night of fun and friendship complete with giveaways, games and a turkey to bring home.

The event was made possible by the Monticello MBK program with support from the NAACP and Dream Tank.

“Events like this help our students and their families feel connected and supported,” MBK Coordinator Rachel Blount said. “That sense of connection can help to transform futures. In the spirit of the holiday, I have to say how grateful I am for the MBK staff, Judge Finn, Elaine Williams and Dana Taylor for bringing this event together.”
