Giveaway is Saturday at 10 AM

The Executive Board of the St. Mary’s Feast Society in Cranston in partnership with  Attorney Mike Lombardi, are holding a  Thanksgiving Turkey giveaway which will be taking place at the St Mary’s Feast Society Headquarters at 10am on Saturday November 21, 2020. 

Feast Society President, Matthew Volpi said this is the first time in at least a generation that the society has held a turkey donation program.

“With the turbulence that this year has brought to many families in our area and all across the country, I felt this was the perfect time to give back to those people who may be in need,” Volpi said.

He heads the society whose premier objective is to pay homage to the Blessed Mother Mary through a Feast Celebration every July. 

“Our society and executive board felt that we absolutely had to try to help our community this year. The COVID-19 pandemic has pushed so many families to the brink. Our society is a pillar of the Cranston Community, so now was the time to step up and enable families who may not otherwise be able to, to have a feast this Thanksgiving. And we found a perfect partner in Attorney Mike Lombardi through his charitable foundation,” Volpi said. 

According to Trustees Chairman Joseph Macera, Jr., the society, along with Lombardi’s Foundation, and 14 other sponsors (including politicians, tool makers, doctors, plumbers and a funeral home) have purchased 200 turkeys to give away Saturday morning. “We even rented a refrigerated truck to keep the turkey’s frozen,” he said with a grin. The society’s Vice President, Richard Campopiano is also the owner of R&D Tool in Cranston who is one of the event’s sponsors. “This is what community is all about. Our society has been here for over 115 years, and I think this is the kind of event that would make the Blessed Mother proud of us,” he said. 

The event will take place at 10am at The St. Mary’s Feast Society Headquarters located at 15 Phenix Ave, Cranston, RI. Participants should wear a mask, and socially distance when attending the giveaway. 

The event is focused on providing a turkey for needy families throughout Cranston and the surrounding area. Nobody should be hungry this Thanksgiving. For more information, visit the Facebook page for the Society at https://www.facebook.com/stmarysfeast/
