Giving Tree needs donations, volunteers, for its Thanksgiving dinner

The Giving Tree Outreach Program will host a free Thanksgiving dinner for the homeless, people in need or for those alone on the holiday.

The group holds the dinner every year and typically serves more than 400 people, said Libby Wright, director and founding member of The Giving Tree.

Dinner will be served at 4 p.m. Thursday on the vacant lot next to the Palm Court Inn, 4425 E. 22nd St.

The faith-based group needs more supplies to make the dinner work, Wright said.

“We really need canned goods, grocery and department store gift cards, and volunteers to bring prepared food for our Thanksgiving meal, and again on Christmas,” Wright said.

Donations are tax-deductible and can be dropped off at The Giving Tree’s office, 4888 E. Broadway, 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. Monday through Saturday, or call 320-5437 for more information.

Citizen Online Archive, 2006-2009

This archive contains all the stories that appeared on the Tucson Citizen's website from mid-2006 to June 1, 2009.

In 2010, a power surge fried a server that contained all of videos linked to dozens of stories in this archive. Also, a server that contained all of the databases for dozens of stories was accidentally erased, so all of those links are broken as well. However, all of the text and photos that accompanied some stories have been preserved.
