Video #10 in SMC’s 20 videos in 20 days countdown until Giving Tuesday November 28 is the Mt. Shasta Thanksgiving Day Community Dinner held 1-5pm at Mt. Shasta City Park. The community, their family and friends are all invited to this wonderful annual event that been going on for 30 years and feeds approximately 1,000 holiday dinners.

Dawn Frazende expressed the greatest need is for volunteers the day of the event, so I’m spearheading the “Clean Your Plate & Stay Late to Help” campaign for this year’s dinner.

After you’re done, help someone and get the gift of the feeling a gracious act brings, especially to someone you don’t know in the community. It’s a great way to meet neighbors and make new friendships that could last a lifetime.

It also a good opportunity for families to share volunteerism with their children. Paula Reynolds has wonderful stories about bringing her children out with her to deliver meals to those not able to attend the dinner – quite a magical musical meals on wheels experience for the holidays.

SMC’s 20 new videos in 20 days a great way to get a sampling of all the community news, local events, community forums, city meetings and more that Siskiyou Media Council brings to communities throughout Siskiyou County on the web at, on SMC’s YouTube channel and on Northland cable stations MCTV15 in Mt. Shasta, CA and YCTV4 in Yreka, CA.

Giving Tuesday is a national day of giving to nonprofits and supported locally by North State Giving Tuesday, hosting close to 120 local nonprofits.
