It's been a staple of La Crosse for 36 years now. And, one reason for the success of the La Crosse Community Thanksgiving Dinner is the children who volunteer to help.

"Pumpkin pies are being baked by middle school students," dinner board member Daria Lapp said. "We have kids in the district making cards and placements.
"It's just wonderful how kids and their families are willing to help."

Over 100 pies are expected to come from the Family and Consumer Science Class at Logan Middle School.

"It's partnerships like the school district, that we rely on," Lapp said. "We know they're going to be there for us."

The feast takes place from 11 a.m. - 3 p.m. at the La Crosse Center and is free to all. And, if you cannot get there yourself, there are multiple options provided by the organization.

"We do delivery for our neighbors who are home bound," Lapp said. "We also have transportation for those who want to come down to the dinner and share with the community but aren't able to get there."

Lapp says the group still needs volunteers. If you wish to help, click here.
