Focus on South Florida: The Thanksgiving Spirit

Thanksgiving is an opportunity for us to stop, and be thankful for all that we have. But Thanksgiving can be a tough time for the people in our community who are less fortunate. The First Presbyterian Church of Fort Lauderdale is bringing the spirit of giving alive, again this year. Much the same way it has for more than 60 years. We focus on the work the church does, and how you can get involved.
