CLEVELAND — Under the leadership of owner Paul Dolan, the Cleveland Indians have committed the organization’s time, effort and funding to local charitable organizations, and they are continuing that tradition of giving as the holiday season fast approaches.

The Indians and Delaware North Companies are hosting their annual Thanksgiving Meal at Progressive Field in the Terrace Club this weekend, as members of the front office, including Dolan, president of baseball operations Chris Antonetti and general manager Mike Chernoff, will serve meals to visitors from Our Lady of the Wayside, Shoes and Clothes for Kids, Boys and Girls Clubs, Ohio Guidestone, The City Mission and Koinonia Homes on Sunday, November 24.

In addition to serving the traditional Thanksgiving Meal, the Indians have partnered with the 3rd Battalion, 25th Marine Regiment from nearby Brook Park, and they will be handing out toys to children who attend the event as part of their ongoing Toys for Tots program.

Also, families in attendance will have an opportunity to pose for photos with Santa Claus.
