Thanksgiving in Chavez Ravine

The Los Angeles Dodgers (of Los Angeles) coordinated a terrific turkey giveaway, buying turkeys for 500 families in the neighborhoods around Chavez Ravine. Councilmember Ed Reyes and I brought our staff up to Dodger Stadium where we gave turkeys out to individuals and to organizations that would get the birds onto local families' tables for Thanksgiving. Tommy Lasorda joined us and wrote about it on his blog, too. If you'd like to volunteer on Thanksgiving, L.A. Works has some ideas.
