For the past three years LA Works has held a Thanksgiving Food Distribution for our most needy clients… thanks to gracious donations from Faith Community Church of West Covina and Glendora Vineyard Community Church. We are contacting our local food banks, grocery stores, and churches again this year in hope of continuing this service. However, for those in our community who seek assistance there are several charity Thanksgiving dinners and turkey giveaways planned for Southern California:
