    Over Thanksgiving weekend, volunteers will be on hand at two San Diego locations to provide hot meals to the less fortunate.

    On Nov. 22, the San Diego Rescue Mission will host a Thanksgiving meal to more than 1,500 homeless men, women and children.

    Nearly 200 volunteers will serve the hot turkey meal from 2 p.m. to 5 p.m. as well as offer personal necessities, such as T-shirts, socks, towels, shampoo, soap and lotion.

    Over at the Kiva Learning Center on Nov. 23, volunteers will serve a warm Thanksgiving lunch from 1 p.m. to 3 p.m. to women and children involved in its treatment program. The program allows women to live with their children while receiving alcohol and drug treatment.

    Volunteers will donate turkeys, hams, gift cards and baby necessities to the women and children.
