WHAT: Orlando Magic Host Coalition for the Homeless Thanksgiving Breakfast
Orlando Magic staff and volunteers will serve Thanksgiving breakfast to homeless men, women and children at the Coalition for the Homeless of Central Florida. The Orlando Magic will provide the meals for over 600 Coalition residents.
This annual tradition includes an open breakfast for Coalition residents and any members of the community who don’t have the means to celebrate Thanksgiving, with coffee courtesy of Barnie’s. The Magic will also host a special carnival for children, immediately following breakfast, at the Coalition’s main campus. Festivities include a guest appearance by the Magic Dancers, STUFF and music by 102JAMZ. The adults are treated to haircuts by Paul Mitchell the School.
Panera Bread will be donating bags of non-perishable food items to the Coalition during the Magic’s breakfast. Panera Bread collected these items at the Magic fan fest on November 18 and will collect additional bags on November 25. Each person who donates is given a $5 gift card to Panera Bread.
