  • 2. Since 1947, the chairman of the National Turkey Federation has presented a turkey to the President. Each Thanksgiving, the President “pardons” that turkey, ensuring that the bird gets to spend the rest of its days living on a farm in Virginia. Today, President Obama celebrated the 67th anniversary of the National Thanksgiving Turkey presentation by pardoning two 20-week old, 48-pound turkeys. And just like last year, the American public decide which of the two turkeys

  • 4. THANKSGIVING DAY IN FAMILY Most families follow traditions begun on the first Thanksgiving, but many have their own traditions that they follow each year. Here are some of the common traditions associated with "Turkey Day". One of the best things about Thanksgiving is spending time with family. Many people live far from family members and travel long distances by car, train, or plane to be with their loved ones. Thanksgiving is the busiest travel day of the year! Many families include the entire family in the food preparation. After the feast families often do additional activities. Some like to take walks after eating such a large meal. Some people take naps. Others sit down together to play board or card games together
  • 5. With Thanksgiving just a few days away, we're starting to reflect on all that we're thankful for, but instead of just listing your good fortunes and saying "Thanks," show your appreciation in a more meaningful way this year by volunteering. Thousands of New Yorkers will be spending this Thanksgiving with much less than you and I, so take the opportunity to put on a hair net, pick up a serving spoon, and give back. From dishing up dinner at local churches to delivering meals to homes, there are dozens of ways to volunteer this Thanksgiving in New York City The Yorkville Common Pantry has been helping hungry New Yorkers for more than three decades. This Thanksgiving, a health, home-cooked meal will be served Wednesday, November 23 from 3:30 to 6:30pm. On an average weekday, the pantry, which pays special attention to nutrition and strives to make meals as health as possible, serves dinner to around 350 people, so help is needed to serve food and hand out groceries from the pantry. The Pantry also needs extra help during its weekday meals before Thanksgiving If you have a car, or the ability to rent one for a few hours, sign up to help God’s Love We Deliver to transport baskets of food to people’s homes. Drivers are needed to deliver specially-decorated gift baskets, plus the regular three course meal, to more than 1,500 homebound New Yorkers. All you need is a car and knowledge of the New York City streets Like most city charity’s, City Harvest sees a tremendous amount of interest in volunteering on Thanksgiving, so almost all of the positions needed at their soup kitchens and dinner services are filled. But City Harvest’s greatest need for Thanksgiving, and throughout the whole holiday season, is non- perishable food items. Help out by donating a box of canned goods at one of the many participating locations: any FDNY or NYPD station, any New York City Modell’s Sporting Goods store or MCU branch locations, or the Daily News building lobby at 4 New York Plaza
  • 6. We love that every year we have to post this earlier and earlier because the slots fill up so quickly. If you’ve volunteered for Thanksgiving before, make this the year you try something new! This year you can choose from serving a meal, signing up families, organizing groceries, washing dishes, and more. Remember, the best volunteers show up on time, with a positive attitude and ready to dig in. Might we also suggest… The churches and places of worship in your neighborhood host food drives, serve their neighbors, collect warm clothing and more. All you have to do is visit the church’s website or contact the organization’s office during normal work hours and ask how you or your group might help
