Reservations Available for Thanksgiving Feast; UNICO, BCB Bank, and BEOF to Co-Sponsor

Reservations are available for a community Thanksgiving dinner to be sponsored by the Bayonne Chapter of UNICO National, BCB Community Bank, and the Bayonne Economic Opportunity Foundation (BEOF). The dinner is for those Bayonne individuals and families who do not have anywhere to go for the holiday. The dinner will take place on Thanksgiving Day, Thursday, November 28, from 11:30 a.m. until 1:30 p.m., at Back Bay Gardens, 535 Avenue A. Tickets are required for this dinner, so that the organizers can provide the appropriate amount of food. There is no charge for the tickets. The deadline for reserving the tickets is Friday, November 22, which is the Friday before Thanksgiving Day.
Mayor Mark A. Smith said, “I would like to thank BCB Community Bank for joining UNICO and the BEOF in hosting this great Thanksgiving event. This dinner is a sign of Bayonne’s generosity in the Thanksgiving season.” He continued, “All residents should be proud that the Bayonne Chapter of UNICO, the BEOF, and BCB Community Bank respond to genuine and continuing community needs each year. We should all thank the BEOF staff, the UNICO members, and BCB Community Bank for providing this outstanding community service.”
Mayor Smith, Assemblyman Jason O’Donnell, and Council Members will join other community volunteers to serve food at the event.
