Delois Anderson, a member of the Cheerful Givers Ministry, serves a pre-Thanksgiving dinner to elderly community members at the Pleasant Branch Baptist Church educational building at Spruce Street on Saturday. According to organizers, over 450 meals were served at the annual event. The ministry was formed in 1992 and is funded primarily through charitable donations, monthly membership dues and two annual fundraisers. Cheerful Givers focus on assisting those with immediate needs, including rent, utility bills and school supplies.
