For more than 30 years, the Veterans have hosted a Thanksgiving meal at the Veterans Memorial Building in Downtown Santa Cruz for those in our community who are houseless or of very modest means. It is a tradition that has continued and endured through the good works of the Veterans themselves and those who support their local mission of serving the less fortunate.
The Veterans for Peace and the Friends of Thanksgiving are thrilled to announce that the Santa Cruz Community Thanksgiving Dinner will once again this year be hosed at the Veterans Memorial Building located at 846 Front Street from 11am to 3pm on Thanksgiving Day, Thursday November 23rd.
Everyone is invited to attend and enjoy a hot, traditional meal of turkey, stuffing, mashed potatoes and all the trimmings prepared by local chefs. The hall will once again be decorated by our local Girl Scouts and music will be provided by local artists. Join us for a day of true community as we eat, share stories and experiences and celebrate the holiday spirit.
Your generous donation will help us turn a time of want and need into a celebration of joy and generosity.
Happy Holidays to you and yours from the Veterans for Peace and the Friends of Thanksgiving.
