12th Annual Community Thanksgiving Dinner continues Wednesday, Nov. 25, 4-7 p.m. at Donald W. Reynolds Facility
The Boys & Girls Club of Truckee Meadows hosts its 12th Annual Free Community Thanksgiving Dinner, Wednesday, Nov. 25 from 4 – 7 p.m. at the Club’s Donald W. Reynolds Facility on East Ninth Street in Reno. All members of the community are invited to enjoy the feast and festivities this Thanksgiving Eve including free flu shots to those who qualify, administered by the University of Nevada School of Medicine.
“Thanksgiving is a special time at the Boys & Girls Club as we get the opportunity to feed many of our Club families and friends in the community who otherwise might not get the traditional meal,” said Mike Wurm, Executive Director, Boys & Girls Club of Truckee Meadows. “This marks our 12th year of providing this free meal and this tradition is very important to the Club and our vendors that support this event.”
The Boys & Girls Club of Truckee Meadows anticipates serving nearly 1,500 members of the community Nov. 25, bringing the total number of people served in the event’s history to more than 12,000. During the event, the community is invited to enjoy a menu of roasted turkey, seasoned dressing with all of the other fixings and dessert. The event also features a blood drive by United Blood Services, free family photos and a special letter-writing station for those who are away from loved ones this holiday season.
The 12th Annual Community Thanksgiving Dinner is sponsored by US Foods, Franco Baking Company and Western Nevada Supply.
