Union Station Homeless Services in Pasadena is calling for donations and food items to help them serve up Thanksgiving meals to those in need this month.
Although the pandemic has made the traditional massive meal at Central Park impossible, the 50th annual event will continue with the distribution of meal boxes “with all the fixings” for those with access to kitchens, as well as prepared, pre-portioned meals, according to Union Station.
But they need some help.
“Due to unfortunate circumstances, the long-time donor for the frozen turkeys has fallen through and Union Station is now short 250 turkeys,” Union Station said in a written statement. “In addition, they need 300 boxes of Idahoan or Hungry Jack mashed potatoes and 300 boxes of Stove Top stuffing.”
Donations can be dropped off by Nov. 17 between 9 a.m. to 4 p.m.
weekdays at the organization’s Adult Center at 412 S. Raymond Ave. in Pasadena
A list of needed items can be found online, as well as a link to an Amazon Wish List where items can be purchased for Union Station. For more information, visit unionstationhs.org/event/dinner-in-the-park-2020.
