Every year for the past few years, Tustin’s own Tyron Jackson has rolled out the red carpet for the less fortunate in Our Town Tustin. This year, on Thanksgiving Day, Tyron and his volunteers will be in Peppertree Park, once again, to bring a Thanksgiving feast to Tustin’s less fortunate with Operation Warm Wishes.
From noon to 5 pm this Thursday, our homeless, families in need, senior citizens, troubled youth and simply anyone who wants to share a great Thanksgiving dinner with their neighbors, can join Jackson, no strings attached.
This is going to be an amazing event for the whole family and community, all to help those in need.You’re invited! Come and be served! For more information please call,.
Jackson promises a spectacular time for everyone who attends. There will be food and entertainment for the fifth year in a row. From what I hear, Denny’s has donated mashed potatoes and Trader Joe’s has donated the gravy. Redhill Elementary school has also helped with a food drive aimed at Operation Warm Wishes.
Tyron Jackson is no stranger to the community, particularly the homeless and less fortunate. He holds several events a year to promote awareness of homelessness, mental illness and to support the less fortunate in our community. Sock drives are a particular forte of his and he was recently seen passing out blankets and other cold weather items to help keep them warmer on these recently chilly nights.
Now, I know what you’re thinking: “I have so much to do,….. I have the entire family coming over,……. Homeless? We don’t have homeless in Tustin (yes, we do)…..” But, how hard would it be and how much time would it take to stop by Peppertree Park and let Tyron know how great it is that he does this? You might even feel the urge to share slice of pie with his friends.
Happy Thanksgiving. Oh, and in case you were wondering, no boring Planning Commission meeting this week. The City Council meets on December 3rd for what will probably be (with any luck) their last meeting of the year.
