Dang it! Found this info somewhere and lost it. Does anyone have the contact info for the person at Saint Felix that is organizing the annual Thanksgiving Dinner for the needy that is hosted at the McDonald's in Rio Rancho? I suppose if I have to I could just run over to the food pantry but was wondering if anyone had this info and/or is going to be helping with this.

Thank you!!!

Leslie

Smile Volunteer Opportunities for Thanksgiving Week

Saint Felix puts on a Thanksgiving Dinner from 10:20 to 2pm on T'day at the McDonald's in Rio Rancho in the Smith's parking lot on the corner of 528 and Southern Blvd. Don't know there number off the top of my head but you can either go over to their food pantry or call between the hours of 9-12 weekdays. United Way has their info. The Dinner they put on is especially for folks that are alone here in ABQ, but I'm sure they wouldn't turn away anyone needy.

Joy Junction has THREE. On this coming Monday at their facility at 6pm, one on the day before (25th?) held at the ABQ Convention Center that will server around 1500. It's goes from 11am to 2am, and a third on Thanksgiving at Joy Junction from 2 to 6 on Thanksgiving Day.

Anyway if anyone is interested, apologies I don't have the number for St. Felix but United Way does. And for the Joy Junction opps, here is a good link

God Bless and everyone have a great Thankgiving

Can regular people come here to eat? I am craving a good meal on that day. How can they tell who is homeless and who is not?

Default volunteering

Hi my husband and I are interested in volunteering on Thanksgiving day (we both have off!) somewhere in Albuquerque. Any information would be great!

Also, "Fat Whale", if you honestly don't have the funds to provide a dinner for yourself, that is exactly what places like this are for! Homeless or not, I'm sure you would be welcomed with opened arms.

Hey Nat:

Sorry I didn't get back to you earlier..The only one. I would check out the one that Joy Junction is sponsoring on Thanksgiving day (see link or go to joyjunction.org). When I called some time ago it sounded like they already had enough volunteers but I seriously doubt they would turn you away if you wanted to help

Same with the St. Felix Thanksgiving Day dinner at the McDonald's in Rio Rancho, but again wouldn't hurt to ask. Only number I have is for St. Felix pantry if you get this by tomorrow. It's 891-8075.

I'm really glad to see so many people volunteering, especially when so many people are going through such hard times..

Oh fatwhale, forgot to mention but the one at McDonald's was started for people who are alone and have no family here. You would be welcome there as well

Leslie

i read a good article in the rio rancho newspaper yesterday about the nuns who put this dinner on and it specifically said it's not just for the homeless or needy... but also for people who find themselves alone over the holiday. isn't that wonderful!
