This year has been unlike any other because of the pandemic, and many Erie County families are hurting financially because of the strain brought on by lost jobs or reduced hours. In addition, many Erie County residents will not be traveling, or will be celebrating the holidays alone or with just immediate family this year because of the pandemic. That means it might feel like a lonely and difficult day for some of those we love.
Luckily, Erie County businesses and organizations understand the difficulties this holiday brings and are doing more than their part to reach out and help people in need -- whether financially or emotionally -- this Thanksgiving by offering free meals to anyone, regardless of circumstance.
