Volunteers needed for annual Thanksgiving in Paso Robles 

Volunteers and donations needed for annual 'Thanksgiving in Paso Robles'

Historically, the bulk of volunteers have come from older retired individuals. With COVID-19, these folks are staying closer to home these days and organizers are hopeful that younger individuals will step forward to keep this Paso Robles tradition alive.

 A total of approximately 1,500 meals will be prepared

Thanksgiving for Paso Robles is in need of volunteers in order to continue this annual tradition to supply a free dinner to anyone. This is the 37th year and the organization has been given the green light to once again have a sit-down dinner at Centennial Park. It takes over 200 volunteers for this event and organizers are approximately 100 short. If they do not get the volunteers, they will not be able to continue with our traditional Thanksgiving meal.
