The Thanksgiving Community Dinner was started by Aids activist Scott

Carlson back in the early 80's to provide a communal gathering for people

living with HIV/AIDS during Thanksgiving to share a meal and spend time

with people who cared. When Scott passed away, the community banned

together and continued this tradition In 2004 The Imperial Court along with

the First Unitarian Unitarian Church, took over the lead role of securing the

continuation of this wonderful tradition and named the event as the Scott

Carlson Thanksgiving Community Dinner in his honor the late co-founder

who was also the founder of Being Alive

This event is supported by so many wonderful businesses within our

community such as The Harvey Milks American Dinner, Osiris Shoes, ICSD,

Walgreens and many others this will mark the 25th Annual Scott Carlson

Thanksgiving Dinner, which will be held at 3909 Center St at the LGBT Center

from 11:30am - 4:00 pm all are welcome this event has grown not just to

the HIV/AIDS community but our Homeless. So come enjoy a warm Holiday

Meal with us.


The annual Winter Blanket Drive was started many years ago after a new

report that many deaths among young children and elderly people in Tijuana

were directly attributed to the cold winter months. Currently the blanket

drive also distributes and donated blankets not only in Mexico but also to

the homeless here in San Diego.

As we sit at home in are warm cozy blankets on the couch others are

shivering with cold what can we do you ask well BLANKETS OF LOVE is here,

to learn more about how you can help please visit and look for Blankets of love.
