VersAbility Resources is asking community members to help fund Thanksgiving meals for the people with disabilities served by the nonprofit.
VersAbility aims to raise $2,500 to help pay for over 250 holiday lunches that will be handed out on Nov. 23 as part of a drive-thru event at VersAbility’s Hampton headquarters. Additional meals will go to the Envisions Day Support program in Newport News, VersAbility’s group homes in Hampton, Newport News and York County, and the Puller Center in Gloucester.

“Sitting down and sharing a meal with family and friends has never been more important for the populations we serve,” said Kasia Grzelkowski, President and CEO of VersAbility Resources. “Thanks to the generous support of local individuals, businesses and organizations, we have always been able to keep our commitment to what has become an annual tradition, and we are asking for help once again.”
All lunches include a turkey dinner with sides and dessert options. While traditionally VersAbility offered a Thanksgiving luncheon in person, last year and again this year, the meals will be pre-boxed out of an abundance of caution given the COVID-19 pandemic.
In 2020, VersAbility handed out more than 300 meals at the drive-thru event, made possible thanks to crowdfunding and the support of Kiwanis Clubs of Division 13.
