LEWISTON – Twenty-five families were on hand to receive Thanksgiving meals at the 100 Pine Street Social Center last week.

The center, a program of Common Ties Mental Health, picked up the meals at the USDA Food Distribution facility in Augusta and brought the food to the Lewiston-based program.

The meals consisted of a turkey roast, canned peas, potatoes, milk, cranberry sauce, canned peaches, pineapple juice and cranberry juice.

At the center, the boxes of food were divided into meals for 25 families and distributed on the same day in time for the Thanksgiving holiday.

Common Ties is a United Way member agency and helps individuals overcome homelessness, economic disadvantages and the impacts of mental health illnesses.
