They well hold an annual turkey drive and luncheon on November 14th and 15th.

Chef JR and the team at DC Capitol Square Bar & Grill will prepare a delicious lunch for returning citizens, seniors, homeless vets, deserving families and vulnerable youth in the heart of DC and Prince George’s County.

• Wednesday, Nov. 15, 11 a.m. to 2 p.m., at 1441 McCormick Drive, Upper Marlboro, MD.
“This year’s gathering isn’t just another charity event. It’s a community call to action,” the Tis Foundation wrote in a press release. The luncheon aims to provide a hot meal and opportunity to break bread and be served by other neighbors who truly care.
