Southwick Civic Fund still in need of donations for Thanksgiving meal

SOUTHWICK – The Southwick Civic Fund still needs the community’s help for the 7th Annual Moolicious Thanksgiving.

With their free meal on Thanksgiving, the Southwick Civic Fund still needs certain ingredients to complete their meal and that is as follows: turkeys, stuffing, onions, celery, gravy, sour cream, potatoes and butter.

While the non-profit organization is looking for more donations from the public, Southwick Civic Fund President and owner of Moolicious, Joe Deedy, is pleased with the support that’s been received by the community.

“It’s coming along great,” said Deedy. “It’s definitely very active right now.”

The Thanksgiving meal is offered at Moolicious on 258 Feeding Hills Rd. and starts at 1 p.m. for anyone who wants to eat at the restaurant. According to Deedy, around 50 people have already reserved their spot to have a sit down meal at Moolicious. Despite that, if people are interested in having a meal, but can’t or don’t want to eat at there, they can sign up to have a meal delivered to their home or place of residence. Deedy also noted 48 people have reserved a meal to be delivered to their home. 

For the individuals that are eating at the restaurant but don’t have transportation to get there, Select Board Clerk Doug Moglin will be driving a shuttle bus to pick people up. Deliveries of the meals will start around 11:30 a.m. Deedy also noted that he and his volunteers cook for around 200 people each year.

It’s still not too late as donations can be made Monday through Wednesday of this upcoming week from 3 p.m. until 8 p.m.

If anyone wants to reserve a spot to eat in the restaurant or have their meal delivered, call Moolicious at 413-569-1700.
