Worcester – The Veterans Inc. annual Holiday Harvest will be held Tuesday, Nov. 20 at Veterans Inc., located at 69 Grove St in Worcester, starting at 10:00 a.m., for veterans in need of assistance. The organization will provide each veteran with a “Thanksgiving Dinner Food Box” that includes all the items to prepare a delicious dinner.

It is now accepting donations of turkeys (all sizes), produce (bags of potatoes, squash, onions, etc.), stuffing, canned gravy, and cranberry sauce. Items may be dropped off at any time, night or day at its 69 Grove St., Worcester office.
