Thanksgiving came early for hundreds of families in Corona on Saturday.
The When In Need Foundation hosted its annual Thanksgiving dinner over the weekend.
The organization invited hundreds of residents, who are not able to afford Thanksgiving dinner this year, to stop by with theirfamilies for a traditional holiday meal.
Attendees also got to enjoy a performance by a clown and listened to music while they ate.
“To buy a turkey a whole dinner for a family, I’m pretty sure not everyone can afford it,” said Corona resident AndreinaRodriguez.
“You going to see so many people, family members, children that we’re going to make happy today,” said Chetachi Ecton, founder of the “When In Need Foundation”.
“Once my mom told me about this, I was actually really excited. I was like, great my little brother gets to have a Thanksgiving dinner,” said Jennifer Diaz of Corona.
Families got to leave with leftovers to take home.
