San Francisco – Five San Francisco groups that help provide Thanksgiving dinners to the homeless and less fortunate received more than 900 free turkeys this week from the Morongo Band of Mission Indians near Palm Springs.
The turkeys will help feed nearly 14,000 people across San Francisco. Morongo donated the birds to Glide Memorial United Methodist Church, the United Council of Human Services, the San Francisco African American Chamber of Commerce, and the Chinatown Community Development Center.
“Year after year, we are extremely grateful to the Morongo Band of Mission Indians for their ongoing generosity and compassionate support of the Chinatown community,” said Rev. Norman Fong, executive director of Chinatown Community Development Center.
