Hotline activated for those who can’t afford Thanksgiving

ALBANY, N.Y. (NEWS10) – Thanksgiving is just over a month away, and on Wednesday Equinox is opening its annual hotline manned entirely by volunteers.

The hotline is meant for individuals or groups who would like a meal delivered on Thanksgiving.

More than 45 years ago, a small group of community and religious leaders, students, and social workers held a Thanksgiving dinner for 200 college students who were not going home for the holiday and would have been alone. This marked the beginning of the Capital District’s largest and longest-running holiday tradition. Today, the Annual Equinox Thanksgiving Day Community Dinner serves 10,000 of our lonely, homebound, or homeless neighbors.

Want to get involved?

The Equinox Thanksgiving Hotline (518)-434-0131 is open from mid-October through Thanksgiving. Please call us or email THotline@equinoxinc.org during that time if you would like to volunteer; make a monetary, food, or in-kind donation; or request a dinner delivery to your home.
