Thanksgiving Meal for Migrant Workers – Interfaith Carlsbad

Most of the Carlsbad Interfaith clients come from “La Posada,” a shelter for homeless men and farm workers in the area.  These men typically work as day-laborers working in the hot sun, only to return to the shelter in the late afternoon/evening.  This project fills a real need and is a great opportunity to share Christ’s love!

Project:  Brighten the day of some hard working men and give them a chance to celebrate an American holiday with a homemade feast that includes a turkey and all the sides.  Make enough to serve up to 20 men.  Volunteers are encouraged to stay and chat after serving dinner.  These men have so many reasons for being homeless and would love to share their future hopes and dreams with you.

Day:  Wednesday, November 21st

***Dates are flexible for this project. If  Monday 11/19 or Tues 11/20 work better for your group, please register, but put a note of your preferred date. 

Time:  Arrive by 5:00pm and be ready to serve by 5:15pm.  Wrap up by 6:30pm.
