Brownstone's serves up free Thanksgiving meals

By Jeff Daley jdaley@wdam.com

HATTIESBURG, MS (WDAM) - Many people lined up early to take advantage of a free Thanksgiving meal at Brownstone's Restaurant on Front Street in downtown Hattiesburg.

For the second straight year the restaurant opened their doors to serve a traditional meal of turkey, ham, dressing, and all the trimmings.

Several area businesses including The Shed, Stricks, Gold Post Restaurant, and Big Star Grocery donated food and time to make the meal a success. Several employees of Brownstone's volunteered to work without pay to serve the expected three to four hundred guests.

"We've done really well and have been blessed and we wanted to give back," said Joel Edwards, General Manager of Brownstone's. "We felt like there is the shelter atmosphere for folks that just can't afford or have time for a good Thanksgiving dinner. We want to give them that restaurant feel of service and make them feel like they are out a restaurant having a real nice meal with the family and just a way of giving back in general."

Donations were collected at the door to raise money for R3SM program in Hattiesburg.
