Wishing you and yours a Happy and Safe Thanksgiving

In this unprecedented and difficult year, on this strange holiday,
we pause to reflect on what matters most: our beloved community.
We are thankful for Newport County's resiliency in the face of adversity, adapting to this "next normal" with grace and grit.
We are thankful for the unwavering support of our community. Because of you, we provided a turkey and all the fixings for 570 families this Thanksgiving.
We are thankful for volunteers who unfailingly answer the call and clients who trust us to treat them with dignity and respect.
We are thankful for you.
Whatever your celebration looks like this year,
we hope your table is bountiful and your hearts are full.
With gratitude from all of us at the MLK Community Center
The MLK Community Center will be closed Thursday and Friday for Thanksgiving break.
We'll reopen Monday, November 30th.
