Thanksgiving at Father Joe’s

SAN DIEGO (KUSI) – Thanksgiving came a day early for hundreds of San Diego’s homeless.

They were treated to a turkey dinner at Father Joe’s Villages Wednesday night.

There was a lot of holiday spirit in East Village Wednesday night as Father Joe’s opened their doors to San Diego’s less fortunate.

More than 2,000 people walked through the doors at Father Joe’s to celebrate Thanksgiving. They were entertained, overjoyed and grateful for the traditional hot meal they received.

Father Joe’s Villages estimates that there are 8,700 men, women and children who are homeless in San Diego, more than half of them do not have any type of shelter.

The East Village facility not only provides comfort and care during the holiday season, but they open their doors to the less fortunate all year round.
