Thanksgiving is a great holiday and you should not spend it alone. If you are unable to make it home this Thursday, here are three events that are happening this Thanksgiving near campus!
Two of our Vanguard alumni; Jared Riva and Manuel Hernandez, are opening up their apartment this Thanksgiving for those who are unable to go home during this holiday. There will be turkey, ham, pot roast, mashed potatoes, green bean casserole, cassava cake, peach cobbler, and rice. There will be enough food to feed approximately 25 people. Jared is doing this because he wanted to reach out to Vanguard students who cannot go home for Thanksgiving. This is a great way to connect with alumni and/or current students. If you are interested in attending, contact Jared or Manuel by Monday on Facebook, or text Jared at (310) 634-2136.
Newport Mesa Church is having a family style Thanksgiving dinner in their Fellowship Hall. They will be watching football, hanging-out and giving thanks to God. This event is for members of Newport Mesa Church and for people who cannot celebrate the holiday with their family. If you decide to attend, feel free to bring a dish to share with others.
You can also be a volunteer. They need help setting up tables, chairs, serving food, and cleaning up. If you are interested in attending or volunteering contact John Tupy at firstname.lastname@example.org. For more information, visit Newport Mesa Church’s website at www.newportmesa.org.
