Morris County Sons of Italy Making Thanksgiving a Little Brighter

PARSIPPANY — As the Sons of Italy Lodge 2561 has done for many years at this time of year, Lodge 2561 continued its practice of delivering fully stocked Thanksgiving dinners to those in need throughout the community. Luckily the forecasted heavy rain held off on a chilly Fall morning as the lodge’s Fundraising/Philanthropic representative and First V.P. Joe Jannarone Jr. began the deliveries of those much-appreciated turkey dinners.  Complete with a fourteen-pound Butterball bird, Mashed Potatoes, Sweet Potatoes, Gravy, stuffing, and various other fixings, including a full-sized apple pie for dessert, it’s a meal that would brighten any family’s holiday. 

Linda Mlynarski, Exec. Director of the Parsippany Child Day Care Center displays fully stocked Thanksgiving dinner.

The first delivery of the day was to the Parsippany Child Day Care Center on Baldwin Road in Parsippany, where Jannarone, helper Nate Olsen, and other Lodge members helped to unload 18 boxed dinners and two boxes of pies to an appreciative Linda Mlynarski, Executive Director of the Center. 

The Parsippany Child Day Care Center is a licensed, non-profit, childcare and early learning center that has been serving the community for almost 50 years.

The truck was still loaded, and with plenty more boxes to go; the rest of the morning was dedicated to delivering those meals to numerous local families throughout the area. For Joe Jannarone Jr., this is one of the highlights of his holiday, and a task he enjoys doing every year.

Sons of Italy-Lodge 2561, a charitable, non-profit organization committed to serving the community, would like to wish everyone a great, safe, healthy, and happy Thanksgiving.
