As the holidays approach, we would like you to remember to stay true to what Thanksgiving means, to give thanks. Our community has always held true to that fact, but it is also time that we truly thank our community and those who helped shaped it. In some cases, people gather around the table and share their troubles, stories, and especially their thanks.
This year a few individuals will continue to host a Thanksgiving Dinner for those that do not have a place to go. While others may only have the opportunity with a small group of their peers. Our local AIDS Service Organizations would normally hold a small dinner for their clients at their respective venues the week of the holiday. We also offer a place for all to come together and share a meal and maybe even good company and conversation on Thanksgiving Day.
We have reached out to these organizations and they are excited to be a part of it, and are inviting their clients. With that, we are looking to provide food for upwards of 400 people and The Round-Up Saloon has graciously opened up their venue for that purpose. The dinner will be a served buffet style starting at
2:00 PM and continue until 6:00 PM. Family style seating will be available.
Now is the time that we ask you to help our community reach this grand moment. We are asking for donations to make this possible, such turkeys and hams, as well as paper goods like plates, napkins, utensils, etc. Financial donations are welcome so that we may purchase the remainder of the supplies. We are also developing a gracious list of volunteers that will help us prepare and cook the items.
With Thanksgiving Day approaching, it is necessary for us to get confirmations from as many donors as possible. This will allow us time to organize, gather, and prepare this heartwarming dinner. If you are able to donate food, goods, side dishes, or monetary gifts, please let us know. We have volunteers that can arrange for pick-up of donations.
My contact information is listed at the bottom of this letter. I would like to thank you in advance for helping us bring our community together for what is to be an amazing community gathering.
Celebrating our community together,
Frank Martinez – Coordinator
