The FPNI Board of Trustees invites you to our Sixth Annual Ecumenical “Thanks” Service at First Presbyterian Church, 521 E Lakeside, CDA, on Sunday, November 2, at 2 p.m.

The entire faith community is invited to gather for a brief time of devotion and thanksgiving, a fitting start to Homeless Awareness Month. Pastors from the Family Promise network will be leading worship as we recognize the local communities’ support and our volunteers. The service will be followed by a light reception hosted by the FPNI Board of Trustees.

Take my hand, let’s do this work together Families should not face these days alone Take my hand, let’s do this work together Work ‘til every family finds a home.

From the song Home Again by Ken Medema

4th Annual FREE Community

Thanksgiving Dinner

Thanksgiving Dinner will be served free to the public from 11 am to 4 pm

Thursday, November 27, at The Fedora located at 1726 W Kathleen Coeur d’Alene.

 The Fedora and many other local organizations and volunteers are working to bring our community together on Thanksgiving Day. Everyone is welcome! There are no prerequisites to attend. “After Four incredible years of business in this wonderful community, we want to keep giving back.  That’s what it means to be a part of such a great community. Even with all the growth here, we are all still so “small town” when it comes to being there for each other when it counts. This is our way to help “make it count.” The time and stories people were willing to share with us were priceless.” say owners John & Mallory Malee of the Fedora.

Last year, in cooperation with community organizations, we fed over 1,300 people from our area for free. This year the planning committee is working hard preparing for an estimated 1,500 of our friends and neighbors who have been hit hardest by these trying economic times. Providing a nice Thanksgiving meal with amazing volunteers may help relieve pressure from families trying to give their families a memorable Thanksgiving. It can also provide a sense of comfort for those who are spending the holiday alone.

Donations for the dinner are being accepted through Elder Help North Idaho. Thank you!
