Donations Sought for 47th Thanksgiving at the Pier Dinner in Hermosa Beach

The Breakwater Church is accepting food and beverage donations for its 47th annual Thanksgiving dinner at the Hermosa Beach Pier for those in need.

Cooked or ready-to-eat items, side dishes, deserts, soft drinks and water can be dropped off at Pier Plaza or in the parking lot starting at 8 a.m. Thursday until volunteers begin serving meals from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m.

More than 1,900 dinners prepared by volunteers with ingredients donated from local businesses and residents were served last year. The tradition was started in 1969 by parishioner Nikie Tedesco — who turns 91 this year — and is the oldest volunteer, donation-driven Thanksgiving dinner in the South Bay, according to the Redondo Beach-based church.
