Thanksgiving spread

Thanksgiving is next week, but that isn’t stopping Eastern Michigan University from getting an early start on things.

EMU is partnering with the nonprofit Hundley Foundation to distribute a thousand Thanksgiving meals to Ypsilanti residents and local community organizations. It’s part of its "Friendsgiving" event taking place on campus Wednesday.

Hundley Foundation vice-chairman and former EMU Football player Samuel Estes says they wanted to give back to the community.

“I think it’s very important we reach out to the community and make sure that they can get a firm handshake and a seat at the table and just enjoy a meal, free of cost to them.”

The meal will be served from 4 to 7 p.m. on EMU’s campus at “The Commons” near St. Johns Street.
