Last-Minute Food Needs

Nov 24, 2010

Volunteers cut pies before last year's Thanksgiving in the Park.

Union Station may have more volunteers than it needs this year for staffing its famed Thanksgiving in the Park meal for the homeless and poor of the San Gabriel Valley, but it doesn’t have enough food. While you’re doing your final shopping before turkey time, please consider adding a couple of things from their wish list and dropping them off at the Raymond Avenue location by Wednesday evening. At this writing, they still needed more pumpkin pies, cranberry sauce, mixed greens, dinner rolls and paper goods; to see what’s on the up-to-the-minute needs list, click here.

    That’s very generous, but you’ll have to call Union Station to offer your help. They may not see this post. We are just the reporters!
