Feeding the hungry for Thanksgiving

Dec. 28, 2013 @ 12:23 PM

Throughout the year Maggie Singletary Lewis, owner of The Lather Lounge Hair Studio, and  Kazlo Lewis, owner of A Gentlemen’s Creation, are always looking to give back to the Durham community.  The Bull City runs deep in their hearts. 

So when Thanksgiving was approaching, it was time to determine the best way to cultivate our community and give back to the less fortunate.  From that brainstorming came the idea to simply feed the hungry.

On Thanksgiving Day, A Gentlemen’s Creation, The Lather Lounge Hair Studio, One Love Ministries, Enhancement Health Care Inc., Inkwell Tattoos, Sunny Grace Ent., TLS Inc., Ricky Duncan, Patrice Parrish, Charmayne and Mario Little and their family  were on site and ready to serve.  They took a break from preparing the Thanksgiving meals for their families to set up shop outside at the Exxon station at 100 S. Alston Avenue to serve the food prepared by Nekeia of Dash of Delight and donations from TLS Inc. Enhancement Health Care, Inc. and One Love Ministries.

Hungry families and individuals lined up to get their full serving of delicious hot food and left with a smile and happy stomach. Some even came back for seconds.  This year would not have been such a success without the monetary donations and donations of foods, love and time from all the individuals involved. 

For Christmas, The Lather Lounge Hair Studio also partnered with Durham County Department of Social Services to give families food and gift cards.
