NEW HAVEN, Conn. (WTNH) — New Haven residents came together to help those less fortunate.
On Wednesday, a group gathered at Christopher Martins Restaurant to sort and pack donated food, clothing, and toiletries.
The items will be given out during a Thanksgiving meal.
It’s all part of the restaurant’s holiday tradition to give back.
“I just feel like Thanksgiving is a good time to give back to those less fortunate or who may need,” Maria Porto.
The dinner will be served Thursday from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. at the restaurant located at 860 State St.
The event is expected to feed and help up to 500 people.
