Presenting a gift to Turkey for veterans, serving military personnel and first responders
Ten local businesses offer 1,000 Thanksgiving dinners filled with turkey, stuffing, mashed potatoes, corn and cranberry sauce at Boulevard Mall.
AMHERST, NY – A second annual turkey dinner was held at Boulevard Mall on Wednesday.
Ten local businesses came together to deliver 1,000 Thanksgiving dinners filled with turkey, stuffing, mashed potatoes, corn and cranberry sauce to veterans, serving military personnel and first responders.
Mark Dominguez, owner of Dominguez Marketing, is organizing the event. He said it is important to serve this specific group of people this year.
“Veterans and active military are nothing compared to what they gave up,” Dominguez said. “They missed so many meals by being away, which is why we wanted to do it last year, and then we extended it to first responders due to the fact that most of them are going to work tomorrow, not with their family and friends.
“Some of them are older and have no one to eat or cook for, so hopefully if they don’t have dinner it will provide them with a thanksgiving meal that they might not have. be not. “
Dinners are served on a first come, first served basis and within the limit of two dinners per car.
