Nov. 15, 2012 - Each year, the Norristown Rotary Club provides and delivers Thanksgiving dinner for needy families in the area. This year, under the direction of chairman Jim Wynn, the club met at Shoprite to assemble and delivered 75 dinners to the community. The Norristown Area School District  confidentially identified some families in need and the local Opportunities Industrialization Corporation volunteers physically made the distribution to those families. The Methacton School District likewise identified some families and made the distribution directly. Family Services of Montgomery County (fsmontco.org/) identified families and the distribution was made with the assistance of volunteers and staff of the Norristown PAL (Police Athletic League) office and the Montgomery County Opportunities Industrialization Center. Finally, baskets were distributed through Norristown Ministries Hospitality Center, serving the homeless in Norristown.
