It’s that time of the year again when family and friends gather together to eat, relax and give thanks.

On Tuesday, dozens of folks from all different denominations gathered together in one Perry County Church to celebrate the true meaning of the Thanksgiving holiday.

“This is a Hazard tradition of a community Thanksgiving service, a collection of the churches here in Hazard come together,” said Daryl Cornett, the Pastor at First Baptist Church in Hazard.

Cornett says the most important thing about the annual event is that it gives people of all religions the chance to give thanks under one roof.

While community members gave thanks, they also helped collect food supplies for local food pantries.

Cornett says donating items to the less fortunate helps remind folks how blessed they really are.

He also says it is nice to have a night when a few differences in beliefs are pushed aside and that people can actually focus on the true meaning of Thanksgiving.

Cornett encourages people to donate non-perishable food items to their local food pantry.
