traditions start in the kitchen. Catholic Charities of Southern Nevada will serve a traditional Thanksgiving dinner to homeless and vulnerable men, women and children on Thanksgiving Day. Approximately 1,500 meals will be served. 

The Thanksgiving meal is made possible thanks to community donations and dedicated volunteers. The Catholic Charities St. Vincent Lied Dining Facility has been serving meals to community members in need since 1965.
