This is the 22nd anniversary of Thanksgiving dinner with Harbor Docks and Habitat for Humanity. Okaloosa Habitat coordinates volunteers to act as wait staff to serve a complimentary traditional meal to locals and tourists at Harbor Docks in Destin. The annual Thanksgiving event has become a welcomed tradition to families along the Emerald Coast both as guests and volunteers.
Each Thanksgiving, Charles Morgan, owner of Harbor Docks, partners with Habitat to assist in helping relieve substandard living conditions locally. While offering a complimentary meal to every guest, he allows Habitat to accept “tips” as a donation to the mission of Habitat. Last year volunteers served over 2000 meals and brought in over $22, 000 in donations.
If you are looking for a way to give back this holiday season consider joining Habitat Okaloosa for a traditional dinner. Doors open on Thanksgiving at 11:00 a.m. with dinner being served until 7:00 p.m. at Harbor Docks, 538 East Highway 98 in Destin; a cash bar will be made available.
Longtime volunteer, George Golematis, GM at the Boardwalk on Okaloosa Island said, “The very first time I volunteered I realized something bigger than my feelings was happening there. People from all types of backgrounds come together and offer the greatest gift of their time, to help a great organization raise money to help people in need. I am both humbled and grateful to be a small part of a great organization and I will continue to volunteer and long as I they will have me.”
Habitat for Humanity Okaloosa County is a non-profit organization dedicated to eliminating substandard housing in Okaloosa County. Reservations are not available.
