Sacramento Area Thanksgiving Holiday Volunteer Opportunities

Real Estate Agent with Dunnigan Realtors

Every year I am asked where Sacramento residents can volunteer to serve a Thanksgiving meal, or where they can donate food or other items to those in need. For 2009 I decided to compile a list of shelters and other organizations that may need your help.

Loaves & Fishes; this year they will serving a Thanksgiving lunch on Tuesday November 24th. They are also seeking food donations, such as pies, turkeys, yams, cranberry sauce, etc. They are also gathering items for a Christmas Stocking giveaway and need items like chapstick, disposable razors, playing cards, gloves, etc. They are located at 1321 North C Street in Sacramento.

St. Philomene Sharing the Bounty Dinner; a holiday meal will be served on Tuesday, November 24th at 5pm in the parish hall located at 2428 Bell Street, Sacramento 95825.

Sacramento Area Emergency Housing Center; volunteers will be needed on Thanksgiving Day and Christmas Day and there are two shifts available- 7:30 am to 10:00am for Brunch and 3:00 to 5:30 for Dinner. SAEHC will provide the food, and just need some extra helpers in the kitchen.

Sacramento Food Bank "Run to Feed the Hungry"; there are several volunteer shifts for both pre-race and race day needs. The actual Run to Feed the Hungry race is early on Thanksgiving Day, Thursday November 26.

Salvation Army Thanksgiving Dinner; a holiday meal is scheduled to be served from 11 am to 1:30 pm on Thanksgiving Day, Thursday November 26th at the Salvation Army's Center of Hope, 1200 North B Street, Sacramento.

St. Ignatius Loyola Dinner; a holiday meal is scheduled to be served on Wednesday, November 25th at 6pm in the parish hall located at 3235 Arden Way, Sacramento 95825.

Folsom Turkey Trot; the 3rd annual Folsom Turkey Trot is a benefit race on Thanksgiving Morning, to help raise money for the local foodbank and a youth scholarship. Monies raised benefit the Twin Lakes Food Bank.

Please contact the individual organizations to see if you may volunteer for any of these programs. If you know of a program that is not listed, feel free to email me and I will post it.
