More Thanks To Give!
I received this the other day from one of our Thanksgiving volunteers:
“As a single U.C. retiree, without family, in planning how I would spend my Thanksgiving today, I had three options:
(1) I could hole up in my apartment, watch television all day, eating left-overs, and feeling very, very sorry for myself; or,
(2) I could have a 7-course dinner at inflated prices in some hotel
dining room, turned off by such an over- abundance of food with so much hunger in the Bay Area; or,
(3) I could take Bart over to San Francisco and head for St. Anthony’s Dining Room, helping serve hundreds of homeless, jobless people, who are so thankful for this generous holiday dinner served in a warm, caring and happy atmosphere, where they’re made to feel like a welcome guest.
I’ve been a volunteer at St. Anthony’s Dining Room for several years and feel richly rewarded for my slight contribution to their wonderful program.”
We give thanks for our amazing volunteers!
