Thanksgiving dinner will be served to homeless veterans and other needy veterans and their families on Sunday, Nov. 20, from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. at VA Western New York Healthcare System, 3495 Bailey Ave., Buffalo.
This event occurs annually on the Sunday before Thanksgiving Day in order to provide a hot and nutritious meal to veterans in need. This marks the 16th year the dinner has been held by the VA.
A turkey dinner, with all the trimmings, will be served by staff in the VA Food Court located in the hospital's lower level. "Our special dinner is just one small gesture to say 'Thank you' to those who have served our country," said Judith A. Kaczmarek, coordinator of the event.
Those interested in attending can contact the VA Homeless Program at 716-862-8885 for additional information or transportation.
