Sen. Jerry Hill, D-San Mateo, right, fills a to-go box of Thanksgiving dinner with the help of Lisa Wong to send home with a visitor to the Martin Luther King Jr. Community Center in San Mateo Thursday. Samaritan House reaches out to the community each Thanksgiving, providing a home-cooked holiday meal for those who otherwise might not have one and a friendly place to go for people who might otherwise spend the day alone. They helped feed 400-500 people on Thanksgiving including Samantha Lim, 4, her mom Joyce Lim, and sister Monica Lim (bottom left) and Anjel Miranda, 4, and Emilda Merida (bottom right).Samaritan House does not stop giving after Thanksgiving, though. The nonprofit agency has a full range of holiday activities intended to brighten up the lives of those suffering through the poor economy. Those who wish to make contributions to Samaritan House to support its holiday activities can go online at www.samaritanhouse.com or mail a check to Samaritan House, 4031 Pacific Blvd., San Mateo, CA,  94403.
