Deuel Vocational Institution (DVI) staff donated full Thanksgiving meals to 75 families through the Girls and Boys Clubs of Tracy.

Each box contained chicken, stuffing, mashed potatoes, gravy, vegetables, cranberry sauce, and gift cards to local grocery stores within the community to purchase perishable items like milk, juice and dessert to complement the meals. The staff also wrote cards of hope and encouragement to the families.

Boxes also contained games, a Slinky, coloring books and crayons for the family to enjoy during the time of thanks.

The children of the centers decorated each box with grateful hearts and hands.
