COSTA MESA — Assemblywoman Cottie Petrie-Norris partnered with Share Our Selves for a three-day Thanksgiving food distribution for families in need in Orange County. Registration for the distribution filled up within a week, however, no one will be turned away. The food distribution is ongoing until end of day Wednesday.

“It’s eye-opening to see how many families in our community are living so close to the edge and barely getting by,” said Assemblywoman Cottie Petrie-Norris (D-Irvine). “I think it’s heartbreaking to see the need but gratifying to be able to be part of helping people have a Thanksgiving celebration.”

Share Our Selves CEO Christy Ward said, “We are extremely grateful to all of our community partners, donors, volunteers, and our program sponsor Assemblywoman Cottie Petrie-Norris. Thanks to their collective efforts, our Thanksgiving Food Distribution Program provided 1,300 meals for families in our community while raising awareness for our comprehensive services.”
