They are giving thanks by giving back… Coronadoans are providing 600 Thanksgiving meals today across the bridge to the kids of the Monarch School, the only school in the country dedicated exclusively to serving children affected by homelessness. As Brad Willis reports, it’s the 4th year of the Coronado-Monarch School Turkey Project headed up by Rick Shaughnessy with the help of dozens of community volunteers.
