Bailey's provides meals for the needy on Thanksgiving Day
Every Thanksgiving since 1993, Bailey’s Seafood & Grill has provided a special Thanksgiving meal to less fortunate individuals in the Lafayette community. Whether it be the destitute, handicapped or those simply in need, Bailey’s has been there and will be there this week. They continue this tradition Thanksgiving Day, Nov. 25, by serving free meals from 10:30 a.m. – 2 p.m. at Bailey’s Johnston street location (5520-A Johnston St.). In addition, Bailey’s will provide transportation for people who do not have a way to travel to the restaurant. Dinner will also be delivered to homes for people who are unable to go to the restaurant due to a physical handicap.
