PhiLAnthropist: Thanksgiving Volunteer Opportunities

Our reporting is free for everyone, but it’s not free to make.
LAist only exists with reader support. If you're in a position to give, your donation powers our reporters and keeps us independent.

It's that wonderful time of the year again. Door-busters, pant-busters, wallet-busters. We've included some ideas for some Thanksgiving volunteer opportunities. You know, so you feel less guilty after eating 14 pounds of stuffing or to prevent you from drinking all day and making things awkward at dinner. Or perhaps you want to take part out of the kindness of your heart, because you are thankful to live in the greatest place ever. This list isn't exhaustive, so leave other ideas in the comments!

It's a community involved effort and The Fruit Gallery can only make this happen with your help. Feel free to volunteer or donate cooked turkeys, canned goods, desserts, beverages, serving trays, monetary donations (copies of all receipts will be made available), tables/chairs, or anything else you can add to the table. “Feed the Beach” will be held on Thursday November 26th (Thanksgiving Day) from 12-2pm at 1 Westminster Ave. in front of the Fruit Gallery by the boardwalk. Email the Fruit Gallery to sign up or call 310-452-3034 for any questions or suggestions you may have.
