SHS Junior Abby Fisher Arranges Thanksgiving Meals for Families in Need

Abby FisherSHS junior Abby Fisher has coordinated the delivery of 65 Thanksgiving meals to those in need.A high school junior is continuing a family tradition to feed Thanksgiving meals to those in need in memory of her Grandmother. Abby Fisher sent out a call to friends and neighbors to provide Thanksgiving meals, trays of home cooked food, fruit and canned goods to be delivered to low income and immigrant residents via the Community Resource Center in Mamaroneck. This population has been particularly hard hit during the pandemic, losing jobs, housing and access to healthcare. Some fail to get any public assistance due to language barriers and fear of reprisals from I

Fisher explained, “For the past few years in the memory of my grandmother’s passing- my family has put together a Thanksgiving event that fed about 400 families in Westchester that are food insecure. Our friends and family would gather and prepare the few days before and then serve a hot meal on Thanksgiving. For obvious reasons this year things had to be different. This year to honor the memory of my Grandma Pat and the Thanksgiving spirit we partnered with the Community Resource Center (CRC) based out of Mamaroneck. The CRC facilitated an opportunity for us to connect with families in need. We have a list of families that you can “adopt” for Thanksgiving and either deliver a hot Thanksgiving meal. About 45 Scarsdale families are providing hot meals for 65 families in Mamaroneck that are on the brink of eviction. The meals will be delivered the Monday and Tuesday before Thanksgiving.  Our community has always been so generous and this year I think everyone feels even more responsibility to help others. I am so proud and lucky to live amongst such caring people.”
