From 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. on Saturday and Sunday, Union Station volunteers will be there to take food donations for their annual Thanksgiving dinner for local homeless people.

Anyone who cannot show up this weekend is welcome to leave food donations at the Coffee Gallery any time before Thanksgiving, according to Stane.
