Douglas Helps The Homeless On Thanksgiving
Hollywood veteran Kirk Douglas took to the streets of Los Angeles on Wednesday (25Nov09) to serve up a Thanksgiving dinner to the homeless.
The 92 year old and his wife, Anne, joined hundreds of other volunteers at the Los Angeles Mission to dish out turkey meals to the needy, a day before the official American holiday.
Other celebrities who took part in the event include High School Musical star Corbin Bleu and Star Trek's Zoe Saldana.
Douglas and his wife, who founded the mission's Anne Douglas Center, which helps train homeless women to get them back into employment, said in a statement, "My wife has been trying to help the women that have been forced onto the streets, and she is determined to give them a better life through the Anne Douglas Center where they have programs that improve and rebuild their lives. We gladly come to serve men and women at Thanksgiving time to give them a good meal and strengthen their desire for a brighter future."
