In a busy Thanksgiving week, the nonprofit Miracle on 1st Street brought Thanksgiving to over 150 Pasadena families and seniors Tuesday.
Most of the distribution took place in District 1 with longtime participant Councilmember Tyron Hampton on hand to help distribute nearly one hundred turkeys.
Miracle on 1st Street, a holiday assistance program dedicated to helping families during Thanksgiving and Christmas, also delivered 50 turkeys to Pasadena seniors with the help of volunteers. The group’s efforts have been recently extended to year-round.
The Miracle on 1st Street has been delivering holiday assistance for 41 years in the County of Los Angeles, according to President Priscilla Henandez.
The nonprofit’s mission is to provide assistance to at-risk and in- need families during the holiday season; bringing smiles to faces by brightening spirits and creating memories, she said.
“In the years following Covid and with rising food cost prices,” said Hernandez, “we hope to provide a small offset of the financial burden during the holiday season. These last years have been tough. The Miracle on 1st Street hopes to ensure that everyone has a wonderful holiday season; that is what the holidays are about”
