Community advocate Rosa Wims, 94, will once again hold the 32nd annual “Rosa’s Pre-Thanksgiving Dinner,” on Nov. 10, at 12 p.m. in the Montgomery Neighborhood Center, at 10 Cady St.
The event is free and open to the public.
Wims, who has dedicated her life to serving others, and lives in a nearby apartment in Corn Hill, was the first black nurse’s aide at Rochester General Hospital.
She went on to become a licensed practical nurse, and later founded the Faith Community Health Awareness Center on Genesee St.
The center was later named in her honor, as the “Rosa Wims Family Wellness Center.”
According to organizers, Wims has a dedicated team helping her with the event, and she’s also recruited volunteers from the health care community.
Foodlink has provided the food for the event for the past decade, and Palmer Food Services has donated turkeys for the event.
Officials said this year’s event will begin at noon and lasts “until the food runs out.”
