Giving thanks for life's blessings – that is the spirit of Thanksgiving. In Fall River, a community of adults living with mental illness is doing just that over a pre-Thanksgiving dinner – graciously thanking area residents for accepting and supporting their efforts to overcome the stigma of mental illness, reintegrate into society, and succeed in their lives. Local Fall River politicians and state representatives will join the members of May Institute's Towne House Clubhouse in serving Thanksgiving dinner to members of the community. Area businesses will donate the food and fixings.
Last year, more than 300 Fall River residents attended the celebration of appreciation – truly a community effort in the spirit of Thanksgiving.
