The Baker’s Favorite Club of Solano Community College is hosting a Thanksgiving meal Nov. 19. The club, along with community members and sponsors, plans to raise money to feed homeless individuals and displaced families in the Solano County area, especially students attending SCC.
“Some of them have lost their homes, sleep in their cars, live in shelters, or going from house to house,” says Beverly Cloudy. “So I thought it was important for them to have a good home cooked meal.”
The Baker’s Favorite Club has been hosting numerous food sales during the semester in order to raise funds for this event. They are also soliciting donations from local businesses and farms.
The goal of the event is to prepare a home-cooked Thanksgiving meal for many students as a comforting event during the winter months.
“Everyone is welcome to have dinner with us,” Cloudy said.
The club is requesting donations of supplies and funds, including turkeys, ham, potatoes, paper plates, etc. For more information or to help, contact Beverly Cloudy, club president, at [email protected] to arrange donation pickup, or send non-perishable donations directly to the Bakers Favorite Club in room 1425.
