More than 1,100 south suburban families — about 4,500 people — will have a better Thanksgiving meal Thursday thanks to the Turkey Day Giveaway sponsored Tuesday by Open Access in Homewood.

The sixth annual event has grown tremendously from its modest beginning at Open Access offices at 900 Maple Ave, in Homewood, according to organizers.

‘A fine idea’: Neighbors work together to solve a concrete problem

Editor's note: Of all the factors that go into making a great community—businesses, schools, infrastructure and events—one of the most important doesn't show up in the numbers, and that's the neighbors we cherish. As Thanksgiving nears, we asked H-F residents to tell us stories about the neighbors who support them in ways large and small. This is one of the stories our neighbors shared with us.

In 2017, Jeremy Smith and Rachel Meadows-Smith moved to a house in Homewood that was perfect for them, except it didn’t have a garage. 

No problem; Jeremy’s dad said he would help them build a garage, extending their long, narrow driveway to meet it behind the house. They enthusiastically planned for the project, which the family would complete themselves. 

Our thanks to you!

By now, some of the side dishes — perhaps the cranberries, or sweet potatoes — may already be prepared.

And you may be getting ready to put the turkey in the oven.

There is a very good chance that you are already extremely busy.

Editor's note: This is an excerpt from a longer piece contributed by Greg Weiss, retired Homewood teacher, storyteller and chef, that will appear in the Homewood-Flossmoor Chronicle's first print edition Dec. 1. Because turkey is likely to be on many family menus next week, we offer this portion of the story in advance. To read more of Greg's culinary creations, find copies of our first print edition at local businesses the first week of December.
