By: Project Boon
Thanksgiving is a time for reflecting on what we have been blessed with, and giving back. On Wednesday, November 27th - the day before the annual turkey feast – local non-profit Project Boon (https://projectboon.org/)
The annual Project Boon event draws thousands of people together for a fun-filled day of feasting, entertainment, and health services. Most importantly, it helps people in need stretch their budgets while still enjoying all that the season has to offer.
Although providing a free bountiful meal to those in need is a reward in and of itself. Eat and Be Well also serves up health and wellness by partnering with both non-profits and for-profits businesses that have programs that provide vital resources. To be able to serve up to 2,500 attendees, Eat and Be Well relies on donations to cover costs and food items. In past years, this has included free dental exams, provided by In motion Dentists, health exams from Bloomington Community Health Center, and bus passes provided by Omnitrans to help people without transportation get to and from the event.
"Last year, after having my house-call dental practice volunteer at Project Boon's Thanksgiving Health Fair, I was able to see what type of impact they were making in the lives of so many people in Southern California,"
