You are invited to join us this Thanksgiving to help prepare, decorate or serve dinner for friends, family and others who may not have a home to celebrate in.  Please also join us for dinner!   Bring your friends and family and let's share our faith and celebrate our community and country.  This is an invitation to anyone who would like to volunteer to help with, and/or attend, the 2019 Community Thanksgiving Dinner.

We will be cooking for approximately 300-350 people and dinner will be served from 4:00-6:00 p.m. in the Fellowship Hall at Sunnyvale Presbyterian Church on Thanksgiving Day, Nov. 28, 2019.  Our Phoenix Center gym will be open for people who would like to come and watch football, play cards or board games, enjoy a snack and hang out from 11:00 a.m. - 4:00 p.m. (showers will be available). 

*We will be collecting cold weather clothing (including gloves, hats, scarves, coats, towels & warm clothes) the 2 weeks before Thanksgiving. There will be red barrels in the courtyard on Sundays & in the gym during those two weeks.
