House of Blues opens its doors this Thanksgiving Day to welcome members of the community in need for a warm and hearty Thanksgiving meal.
The original House of Blues location in Harvard Square debuted in 1992 by opening its doors to feed the homeless on Thanksgiving Day. This initiated what would be an ongoing tradition for future House of Blues locations, including New Orleans.
Grace House, Bridge House, Hope House, Ozanam- Serving the Homeless, St. Jude Community Center, and Project Lazarus are a few of the several non-profit organizations to be served on Thanksgiving Day. While Project Lazarus will not attend, House of Blues will be delivering to their residents in need. Volunteers from House of Blues along with their friends and families, Zatarains, and UNO Men’s Tennis Team are proud to donate their time to assist in making this a very special day for those in need.
"Feeding citizens of our community is a Thanksgiving Day tradition. Our staff and volunteers feel strongly about giving back to our community. We are thankful to be able to provide this small gesture during a time of need" said House of Blues General Manager, Robert Rizzuto. "We look forward to providing an opportunity to create a warm and welcoming place for those who would otherwise go without."
