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.
