LAist relies on your reader support.
Your tax-deductible gift today powers our reporters and keeps us independent. We rely on you, our reader, not paywalls to stay funded because we believe important news and information should be freely accessible to all.
The good people of Goldstar, who can hook you up with discounted tickets to some amazing local concerts, plays, shows, and events, have a quick and easy way for us to help out people who might not have access to a sumptuous feast tomorrow, and we don't have to spend a fortune or even leave our computer. From their website:
As part of Goldstar's effort to give back to the community this Thanksgiving, we are partnering with the Union Station Homeless Services to help promote their Thanksgiving Dinner in the Park and solicit donations on their behalf. Each donation you make through Goldstar will go directly to the Union Station Homeless Services to provide dinner for a family of five.

Since 1977, Union Station Homeless Services and their volunteers have provided delicious Thanksgiving meals for the homeless and very low-income men, women, and children of the San Gabriel Valley.

Although the turkeys will be given out to the needy on Thanksgiving morning, donations will be accepted through Goldstar until Sunday night after Thanksgiving.

A gift of $10 (or more!) will go a long way in helping people out in the spirit of giving, and with thanks.
