This Thanksgiving many families are spending time at home, but for some they are also volunteering in our communities. Groups of volunteers spent their Thanksgiving morning donating meals to labor workers in San Diego.

“It’s beautiful weather, but we also have to remember some of these people don’t have a home,” said Enrique Morones, president of Gente Unida.

For its 35th year Gente Unida was handing out food for day laborers like Julio Cesar, they were joined by other non profits including United We Stand.

“I’ve seen Enrique Morones bringing hope to our community to our people,” said Julio Cesar, who was donated a meal. “It’s meaningful because we’re here not only to work but to support our families and survive in this society.”
