Jaime P. Martinez Annual Thanksgiving in the Barrio
This CECLEF tradition, started by the late Jaime P. Martinez began with a distribution of ten turkeys. This growing event is an opportunity to give back to families during the holidays. Families are provided food items to take home and prepare a traditional Thanksgiving Day meal for the family. This special holiday event is one where many organizations, community leaders, and volunteers unite as a community to serve others in the barrio that our founder grew up in. In 2020, thanks to our corporate sponsor HEB and its volunteers, the event experienced its largest turnout of volunteers and served a record number 500 families.
