Church hosts seniors for early Thanksgiving

Posted: Updated:

SAN DIEGO (CBS 8) – Hundreds of local seniors enjoyed an early Thanksgiving dinner Thursday.

About 300 senior citizens attended the 45th annual event hosted by Clairemont Emmanuel Baptist Church. They were treated to a traditional Thanksgiving feast with all of the fixings.

The dinner celebration is funded by church volunteers who also provide transportation to make it easy for them to enjoy.

"It's a great time for our folks to be able to serve and they get as much out of serving as the people do being able to come and join us here for this meal," Pastor Kenny Dodd said.

The celebration also featured singing and entertainment by preschool children and a drawing for gifts.
