WHO:

Comptroller Peter Franchot

WHAT:

On Wednesday morning, Mr. Franchot will join a team of 300 volunteers at the annual Goodwill Thanksgiving Dinner and Resource Fair in Baltimore to serve 3,000 holiday meals to individuals with disabilities or special needs. The event, which is in its 64th year, also serves to connect attendees with Goodwill programs, job training and placement, mental health resources, substance abuse treatment and health insurance enrollment.
