It was a day of giving for South Pasadena city officials who took part in the traditional Thanksgiving Dinner in Pasadena’s Central Park.

Serving food to the less fortunate were City Manager Stephanie DeWolfe, Acting Police Chief Brian Solinsky, Police Sergeant Shannon Robledo, and City Councilman Robert Joe, joining, among others, Pasadena Mayor Terry Tornek and State Senator Anthony Portantino, whose 25th District represents South Pasadena.

“An army of volunteers served up hope and hot Thanksgiving dinners to thousands of homeless men, women, children, seniors, very low-income families, and those with no place to go during the holidays,” explained Robledo.

The dinner was hosted by Union Station Homeless Services, who’s purpose is to help those in need, identify the causes that led to their homelessness, and provide the tools and resources needed to lead a productive life.
