Sam's Club donates

food for families

Mt. Zion in Clarkston thanked the Sam’s Club in Auburn Hills for donating 11 complete dinners to Independence Township residents in need.

“It’s something we did for families to feed them for Thanksgiving,” said John Deselle, a membership manager at the club. “We are going to try to something different every year.”

Mt. Zion has an account with Sam’s and called the church and asked them to find 11 families in need of a Thanksgiving dinner.

Each family received a 25 pound turkey, and one family a ham because the kids cannot eat turkey.

Dinners also included cranberry sauce, macaroni and cheese, potato salad, green beans, a gallon of milk, butter, mashed potatoes, stuffing, a pumpkin pie and Hawaiian sweet rolls.
