Although Halloween isn’t over yet, it isn’t too early to start planning for the Thanksgiving Holiday and that’s exactly what The Steven A. Cohen Military Family Clinic at Endeavors officials are doing as they prepare for the 6th Annual Vetsgiving.

Join us for our 6th Annual Vetsgiving where military volunteers will serve a FREE Thanksgiving meal to community members in attendance,” read a post shared to the clinic’s Facebook page.

The event is free and is intended for the military community. Those who attend will not only be provided with a free Thanksgiving meal, they will also be provided with blankets and hygiene kits courtesy of community housing and resource programs.

As clinic officials prepare for this free event, they are asking the community for help with sponsorships and In-kind donations so they can have enough supplies to provide a warm meal for all their guests.

Volunteers are also needed but volunteers must be a veteran, active duty service member, or reservist.

Volunteers will assist in the following areas:

  • Food Prep/Servers
  • Front House Attendee
  • Hosts
  • Cleaning Crew
  • Security
  • Rovers

If you would like to be a sponsor, provide a donation, or become a volunteer you can reach out to the clinic’s Outreach Director, Ismael Lopez at
