KANSAS CITY, Mo. - At the Memorial Church in southeast Kansas City's "Powerfeast," the food is just the first part of the day on Thanksgiving.
"When you leave here, you need something else so we started to do it where you got one stop you go here, you go over here, you get you some underclothes, you go over here, you get you some shirts, you get you some pants," one volunteer said.
Clothes, toiletries, hair cuts, beauty treatments, manicures, and health screenings were all on the menu today in addition to entertainment. It was the place to be for this woman.
"This is a good way to spend the holiday for me," she said.
It couldn't happen, however, without the help of many volunteers. These young volunteers were handing out clothes and bags.
"It feels great because other people's getting what they need because myself- I'm blessed to have what I need," said Zackery Matthews.
Matthews says the people he helps are very thankful.
So far the Memorial Church has served more than 22,000 meals and given away more than 200,000 pieces of clothing.
