Salute’s Day of Giving Thanks

We invite you to get involved!

Every year on Thanksgiving Day, we serve over 1400 meals to individuals in need which includes transport from 10:00 am – 3:00 pm Salute hosts a Thanksgiving dinner for needy families and those less fortunate living in Contra Costa County. We also offer free flu shots to our guests, thus extend the benefits to our community beyond this one-day event. This is our sixth year and we are proud to continue to serve the many families including US Veterans from Contra Costa and Marine Counties that will enjoy a Thanksgiving meal at Salute.

Last year we serve over 1200 meals to individuals and needy families. In addition, Salute gave a coupon to each family good for ten sandwiches and a cup of soup throughout the Holiday season. We are proud to serve meals to 700 US Veterans from Contra Costa and Marine Counties were among the many families that had enjoyed a Thanksgiving meal at Salute.

All of us at Salute are proud to do whatever we can for our community and are overwhelmed by the enormous support and generosity from our loyal customers, neighbors, friends, families, and business associates in this effort to continue to make Salute’s Day of  Giving Thanks a yearly event and excited to see how this will grow for many years to come.
