Turkey for Me, Turkey for You at Mary Hartwell Catherwood Apts

Socialize and share a holiday meal with seniors! During this annual celebration, volunteers will cook and serve residents a traditional Thanksgiving feast and afterward join them for a fun interactive game. By doing so, you’ll bring residents together for community-building that can decrease feelings of isolation and provide a warm holiday meal for residents who may not otherwise have one.

  • Some participants speak only Spanish or Polish.

  • Volunteers are encouraged (but not required) to bring a dessert to share

  • Easy El access: Red Line
