Yes! We love being able to bring Thanksgiving to those who cannot join us in person. This year we are grateful to be partnering with Meals on Wheels West, who will be preparing and delivering our Thanksgiving meals. Please note that our homebound delivery will be on Thanksgiving Day, November 26 (not Wednesday the 25th). If you know of anyone who would enjoy a meal delivered to their door, please contact Christine Gerety at or (310) 566-1531 by Tuesday, Nov. 17, and provide the recipient’s name, address, and phone number.
No onsite parking. Please park on the street. Read the street signs for parking restrictions. We encourage carpooling, ride sharing and other alternative transportation alternatives.
The Santa Monica Blue Bus line has stops for the number 2, and 18 busses all within one block or a block and a half of the dinner, as does the Metro 20 and 720. You can also ride the Metro Blue Line (train) into Santa Monica at 4th and Colorado. From there you can walk or catch the Blue Bus number 18 to Lincoln and California and then just walk a block down to 7th and California to get in line for the dinner.
We thank you so much for your generosity, however we are not able to receive clothing donations this year, due to COVID regulations. We still need your help. We ask that you donate toward the purchase of clothing for our guests here.
Here are two places where you can take your donations:
This year we are keeping it as safe as possible and will not have volunteer sign ups, but we still need your help. Please click here to volunteer to donate.
This year due to COVID regulations we are partnering with the Jonathan Club to still provide a Thanksgiving meal for our guests, but it will be a grab and go meal instead of donated food. We ask that you consider donating toward the purchase of a Thanksgiving Meal for one of our guests here, or volunteer to donate here.
This year due to COVID regulations we are purchasing premade kits. Click here to make a donation toward the purchase of a toiletry kit (or two!) for our guests.
Thank you in advance for your generosity. Please click here to donate.
