Dodd’s Furniture & Mattress is giving back to the community in which it does business for a 23rd year, with three Thanksgiving meals across the Island.

The family-run franchise of 44 years is facilitating the annual dinners for those communities’ “most vulnerable citizens,” including at Victoria’s Our Place Society. Listed as a “grab-and-go” style event, it is available from 4:30 to 6:30 p.m. on Friday, Oct. 8.

Other Thanksgiving meals will be served Oct. 5 in Nanaimo at St. Paul’s Anglican Church from 4 to 7 p.m., and Oct. 6 in Campbell River at the Salvation Army Lighthouse Community Kitchen from 4:30 to 6:30 p.m.
