You will officially have November 19-November 23 off for Thanksgiving. There are many things to do during Thanksgiving break to help your community. You could spend your time helping and making our community a better place. A lot of activities are available to do during Thanksgiving that will help many people.

1. Westside Thanksgiving

There will be many volunteer places where you can volunteer to help serve food to the homeless and low income families. An example of this is the Westside Thanksgiving event. Many volunteers will be serving a traditional turkey dinner to everyone for free starting at 11am. Seniors, students, the homeless, and low income families are all welcome to arrive at this feast. This will take place on November 22, 2018 in West L.A. Civic Center which is 1645 Corinth Ave. Everyone is gladly welcomed to participate in this event.

You could also participate in walks to raise money such as The Turkey Trot in Burbank. This occasions draws in around 2,500 participants so far that will be able to run, jog, walk, or push strollers for a good cause. Prizes for this will be cash money and medals.
