Life Church of Ascension Parish, located at 15267 Joe Sevario Rd., Gonzales, has provided Thanksgiving meals for more than 100 families in crisis in the last five years. Thirty-three "Thanksgiving Boxes” were prepared this year and delivered to families in need. The boxes included everything for the traditional Thanksgiving meal including a turkey and the fixings.
