Gobble, Gobble Give Needs Your Help for Thanksgiving

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.

Gobble Gobble Give began ten years ago, when Echo Park's Barry Walker set out to cook and deliver Turkey Day meals to the homeless in his neighborhood. Now every year he's joined by others who want to help out, and the event is not only growing each year, but continuing to demonstrate how powerful a community can be in creating change.

For this Thanksgiving, Gobble Gobble Give is looking for volunteers on every level who can give food, money, or clothing and those who can donate their time on Turkey day by cooking, warming, packaging and delivering food to the homeless in Echo Park and Downtown LA. Every little bit helps those in need!

To help out with money and supplies, go here. To sign up to participate on Thanksgiving Day, go here. More info about the event is available via Facebook.
