The St. Anthony Foundation will serve more than 3,500 turkey dinners to the poor and homeless on Thanksgiving Day with the help of the Hells Angels and Craigslist founder Craig Newmark.
About 20 members from the San Francisco Chapter of the Hells Angels will visit the St. Anthony Dining Room at 45 Jones St. from 3 to 5 p.m. today to help carve turkeys.
Francis Aviani, a spokeswoman with the organization said the motorcycle club has been gracious and supportive.
“We reached out early on when we realized how big this Thanksgiving was going to be and they were the first group to step up and say they wanted to help,” she said.
The organization will host a dinner at 9:30 a.m. Thursday with help from Newmark.
St. Anthony will also hold a curbside donation drive from 8 a.m. to 6 p.m. today and from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. Thursday. They will accept canned and dried food, bulk food and protein items and warm clothing that are clean and gently used.
The 59-year-old nonprofit organization provides a gateway to solutions to poverty for individuals and families.
