It started with one person… and now a group of friends have shown up to help cook and deliver meals for the past 14 years – the first year, 28 homeless were fed! The next year more showed up and over fifty meals went out. The following year we reached the 100 mark and fast-forward to last year when we were able to feed over 10,000 homeless across multiple cities in the USA.
Gobble Gobble Give has become an incredible example of what a community can do to make change. If you are reading this, you have been invited to join us!
WE NEED YOUR HELP
This year GGG is making a bid to reach out to more cities and to help more people. But we need your help first!
We’re using IndieGoGo to raise money for our annual multi-city potluck. Gobble Gobble Give is a 501c3 non-profit and all funds go towards providing food, supplies, and any relevant facility costs to those that host our event. Anything left over just rolls into the next year.
Every Thanksgiving we try to expand our ability to help feed the homeless, and every Thanksgiving we’re floored by the outreach of support (from our on-the-day volunteers to the companies that donate their goods to clothe the homeless). This year we think we can do even more!
This campaign is raising funds on behalf of Life Choir Inc, a verified nonprofit. The campaign does not necessarily reflect the views of the nonprofit or have any formal association with it. All contributions are considered unrestricted gifts and can’t be specified for any particular purpose.

• For the past 47 years, we have presented a Thanksgiving Feast for the homeless, seniors. It started out as an invite to friends from my childhood associations in Aliso Village Housing Project with 17 people, and has grown into an event that now feeds up to 1400 on Thanksgiving Day. The event was held in my home for 15 years. When LIFE Choir was founded in 1981, it’s members undertook the pleasure of making it the wonderful event that it has now become. We’re proud to say that we have people who have attended the event for over thirty years. The sad thing is that some of them have been homeless that long.
Thank you all for your support! Because of you, families will have a hot turkey dinner this Thanksgiving and will know that God used friends like you to show compassion and empathy to their needy situation.

I just want to give you a fabulous updated about the event. Because of your generosity, we were able to provide 154 turkeys (and all the trimmings) to the families of our students. Without your support, this would not have happened. Our goal was 75 Turkey baskets, but you made it possible for us to double our efforts.
I will post pictures and video as they become available.
Again, thank you so much!
Together we can move mountains. Together we are the change we have been waiting for. Together we are making this world a better place. For that, we thank you.
Fr. Michael Greco is dedicated to helping Neighbors Together, a Soup Kitchen and Community Outreach Program in Brooklyn. 30 Thanksgivings is a new campaign to sponsor the 30 meals that Neighbors Together will serve after Thanksgiving — between December 2nd and December 20th.
A donation of $800 can sponsor a lunch or dinner. If 10 friends each chip in $80, or 80 friends chip in $10, together we will have sponsored a meal for over 200 people. No donation is too small.
