For 124 years American charity Union Rescue Mission has been feeding the homeless over the Thanksgiving holiday weekend. 200 volunteers work tirelessly to feed the estimated 4000 Skid Row residents a heathy meal on a special weekend.The charity provides shelter for the homeless, clothing, medical and dental care, in addition to legal support, and has quite the regular celebrity following.
The Los Angeles born organisation was visited this weekend by philanthropic Hilton heiress Paris Hilton, who worked in the kitchen dishing up the turkey- based goods to the thousands of hungry men and women. After her stint at serving the public, she returned to her parent’s mansion for a Kathy Hilton feast!
She tweeted yesterday evening: “Thanksgiving is about appreciating what you have and giving back to those in need. Always enjoy my time making the holidays special for everyone at the Union Rescue Mission. Happy Thanksgiving.”
Meanwhile, across town Kendall Jenner and friends were spotted handing out sandwiches to the homeless they spotted on the street. Good work girls!
