Free Thanksgiving dinner an annual tradition

Once again Angie’s Restaurant is providing a free Thanksgiving dinner to the community. Those who cannot afford a turkey dinner on Thanksgiving or don’t want to eat alone are invited to come to Angie’s between 11 a.m. and 2 p.m.On KVNU’s Crosstalk show Tuesday, Angie’s owner Saboor Sahely said his employees are looking forward to this annual tradition. “We’re excited that on one hand we’re going to open our doors to our community that helps us day-in and day-out, even through these tough economic times,” Sahely said.He says this is a highlight of the year where he and his employees get to give back. “We’re still providing jobs for 65, 70 plus people. I make a living. Our employees make a living. This community has been wonderful to us through thick and thin. So this is one day we open our doors and we say, ‘thank you, Cache Valley, for keeping us in business for 26 plus years.'”Saboor was working at Sambos at the same Main Street location the first year he came to Logan from Afghanistan. He says he will always be grateful to a local custodian who invited him to his home for Thanksgiving.Those who can afford to pay are invited to donate to a charity. This year the designated charity is the Child and Family Support Center. Sahely says, unfortunately, child abuse transcends all cultures as a universal phenomena and a universal shame.
