FRAMINGHAM – The cars were lined up all along Park Street Tuesday morning for United Way of Tri-County’s annual Feed a Family program.
Annually on the Tuesday before Thanksgiving, families, who pre-register, receive groceries and a turkey to make their Thanksgiving dinner.
Joe Mina, with the United Way, said about 520 families pre-registered from the United Way’s list of 36,000.
Mina said about 620 bags of groceries and turkeys would be distributed on Tuesday.
Volunteers from several MetroWest businesses as well as City of Framingham Mayor Charlie Sisitsky bagged up groceries, put them in a shopping cart, and put them into cars and SUVs.
Mayor Sisitsky’s first cart of groceries was delivered to a single woman with four kids, who was thankful for the turkey & groceries.
