The Third Annual Family & Friends Thanksgiving Buffet was a tremendous success Tuesday night, serving more than 200 people between two locations, the Multi-Service Center and the 221 Jackson Street community room. Everyone seemed to have a great time, and all the food was eaten and everyone who came got fed. Each year the event seems to get bigger and better-attended, and is becoming a great Hoboken holiday tradition that is greatly appreciated by our city’s seniors and public-housing residents.
Thanks to Luis Acevedo for lots of hard work helping organize, publicize and execute, and to the City of Hoboken, Mayor Dawn Zimmer and Health & Human Services Director Leo Pellegrini; and the Hoboken Housing Authority, Executive Director Carmelo Garcia, for providing facilities and support. Many, many thanks to all of our generous sponsors and volunteers, who were enthusiastically responsive this year, and without whom this would not have been possible.
