Gobble Gobble Give 2013

Have some time or no plans thanksgiving morning?

http://www.theecho.com/event/418189-gobble-gobble-give-2013-los-angeles/

Come help and donate some time and food, toiletries, and blankets, clothes

Here's the rundown on how THANKSGIVING DAY will work:

Everyone arrives at 10 a.m. SHARP Thanksgiving morning.

Everyone is asked to bring the following:
1. A DISH. "ALREADY HEATED" This is a potluck event. It can be as little as a side of vegetables or it can be three large bowls of your grandma's famous "cranberry walnut stuffing". We can always use Turkeys and main course items. Side dishes are great as well. Veggies, Veggies, Veggies. Mashed potatoes, yams, vegetables, greens, etc. Of course desserts are always awesome.

2. FIVE (5) SMALL TOILETRY KITS. that include a: toothbrush/toothpaste, soap and shampoo. You can get these items very inexpensively at $0.99 stores.

3. CLOTHING AND BLANKETS. Please bring any used blankets and/or gently used sweaters, jackets, shirts, socks, shoes, beanies/hats for men, women, children.

At 10:15 we begin a large "conveyor Belt" of food and with the help of everyone we put the meals together. We box them up together with care packages of tooth brushes, soap, clothes, etc..

At around 11: 00 a.m. the first vehicles begin to roll out. For those of you who have a car and want to drive you will be known as drivers. We will put a few people in your car with you and you will go out in two or three car teams. We hit the riverbeds, the alleys, the freeway overpasses. sometimes we discover small villages of people in dirt fields and empty lots. The vehicles return after delivering all the meals. We are always done by 1:00 p.m..

    Do you have to bring each of the items that they are asking for? If you bring at least one or two of the items is that fine?

    Also , if anyone wants to donate clothes, food, toiletrys but can't attend, I can pick up or get it to me before the 28th, Thanksgiving is about sharing and helping, so if any other transplants here that can't see family this year like me want to help, I'd appreciate it, thanks guys !
