Volunteers with People's Place ready the fixings for Thanksgiving dinners

KINGSTON – Snow has already graced the Mid-Hudson region, and home heating oil prices have already topped $6-a-gallon a month before the official end of autumn.

So, on a frosty Monday morning, three days before Thanksgiving, volunteers at the People’s Place were helping those in the need this year by handing all the food needed for a nice holiday meal.

“It’s busy, just like every year,” said Christine Hein, executive director of People’s Place in Kingston.

The People’s Place expects to serve about 1,400 households with the food needed for Thanksgiving.

“It’s a tough time for folks with inflation and the cost of food. It’s harder and harder to make people’s budget stretch further,” said Hein. “Traditional Thanksgiving foods are so expensive.”
