Welcome to Thanksgiving Meals & Events

Thanksgiving is a national holiday that can be fun and/or challenging for most everyone.  For those most in need, it is especially tough.  Not having a place to live, and public buildings being closed for the holiday means having an extra difficult time finding a place to spend time during the day.  There are a few special events, as well as the usual Free Meals that are still open on the holiday.
