More than 200 Catholic Charities’ client families were treated to home-delivered Thanksgiving meals due to the efforts of generous volunteer fundraisers and organizers Eva Scott and Pattie Dutra. Catholic Charities of Santa Clara County was one of four charities selected by the “Dinner in a Box” program to receive Thanksgiving meals this year.
Overall, the operation served 570 local families in need with a huge assembly-line operation of volunteers who put together the boxes of turkey, potatoes, vegetables, stuffing and pie. The boxes were then delivered to the doors of the homes of grateful recipients.
“I am thankful for this support in a time of need. I was able to provide my family with a delicious dinner for Thanksgiving,” according to a mother of five children who receives help from Catholic Charities Supportive Housing Services.
Catholic Charities serves 575,000 meals annually to clients in programs throughout Santa Clara County.
