The Los Angeles Mission welcomes the homeless and the hungry of Skid Row to enjoy a gourmet Thanksgiving feast prepared by LA’s top chefs on Wednesday, November 23. Approximately 3,500 meals will be served to those in need with the help of many volunteers. Longtime NBC4 Anchor Colleen Williams and Weathercaster Fritz Coleman gave their time to help serve meals to individuals and families beginning at 11 a.m.
The Los Angeles Mission is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization established 80 years ago and continues to provide long-term rehabilitation programs that restore health and hope to thousands of homeless individuals. Every day, and all year long, the Los Angeles Mission serves more than half a million breakfasts, lunches and dinners. The organization also offers emergency services such as overnight lodging; 13-month long residential treatment; and a rehabilitation program that includes teaching life skills and vocational training to re-establish dignity and restore productivity.
All members of the community can join the Mission to help the hungry and homeless. To learn more, visit www.mealsandhope10k.com.
