If you've gotta pull a little tighter on the purse strings this year, there are plenty of places you can go to get a free Thanksgiving dinner.

I've said it before and I'll say it again - Genesee County is one of the most charitable, giving communities I've ever lived in. And this year is no different - tons of places are offering free Thanksgiving meals.
