St. Monica Catholic Community will host its annual Thanksgiving dinner on Wednesday, Nov. 26 for those who may be facing particular financial hardships this season or who may find themselves alone this holiday.
The dinner is free of charge and will be served from 3 pm to 6 pm in the auditorium. All are welcome.
A 35-year tradition in Santa Monica, this Thanksgiving meal is prepared and served by more than 400 volunteers in a comfortable family-style atmosphere and feeds approximately 1,000 people.
After dinner, guests will receive free toiletries and are invited to browse a “clothing boutique” for free, new and used, cold weather clothing and supplies.
Donations of food, cold weather clothing, and blankets are welcome. Details can be found at www.stmonica.net/thanksgiving.
