MIDDLE RIVER, MD—Local first responders and elected officials gave back to the community in a big way over the weekend.

On Saturday morning, Official Ravens Roost BQ invited members of Bowleys Quarters Volunteer Fire Rescue & Marine, the Baltimore County Police Department, and the Baltimore County Fire Department in giving 150 Thanksgiving dinners to local families in need.

Also participating were Baltimore County Councilman David Marks, Delegate Kathy Szeliga, and Delegate Ryan Nawrocki.

“Community is everything to us at Ravens Roost 139, and I couldn’t be more proud of our team for working together to serve those in need this holiday season,” said “Feed the Families” organizer and Roost member Pat Farrell. “More than 100 families in Eastern Baltimore County will enjoy a delicious meal this Thanksgiving – being able to focus on time with family and loved ones instead of the expense. We couldn’t have done it without the incredibly generous donation from Geresbeck’s Food Market, a neighborhood staple that always goes above and beyond to give back to the people it serves.”

The meal distribution was made possible by Geresbeck’s Food Market, who donated the meals.

The event was organized by Official Ravens Roost BQ.

Families were identified through communication with several local schools. Home deliveries were made to approximately 25 households without transportation.
