Aiming to help Santa Maria’s most destitute community members, more than 100 volunteers served up a traditional holiday meal during the Central Coast Rescue Mission’s Thanksgiving banquet.
The annual dinner — held Friday at the Veterans Memorial Hall — is organized by Central Coast Rescue Mission staff with the help of volunteers from local businesses and organizations, including Walmart Neighborhood Market, Starbucks, Foodbank of Santa Barbara County and many local churches.
In addition to serving the holiday meal, volunteers handed out blankets to those in need.
