On behalf of the Milford Youth Center staff, we would like to express how grateful we are for all the companies, families and individuals who made our Thanksgiving meal for the kids a huge success! We were able to serve over 125 kids with a nice, hot meal as well as donate leftovers to the Milford Fire Department and local families in need. The Milford Fire Department allowed us to use their oven to keep food warm before we served it.
