The Sun Shines on Good Deeds

Owner and head chef at Pappo Restaurant, John Thiel, displays a pair of the turkeys he dropped off as a donation to the Alameda Food Bank last week. In all, Pappo donated 64 turkeys to the food bank to assist in the annual Thanksgiving turkey drive. The restuarant is also known for hosting an annual community soup kitchen for the less fortunate on Christmas Eve. Now in its 12th year, the soup kitchen will take place from 11:30 to 2 p.m. on Tuesday, Dec. 24. Pappo is located at 2320 Central Ave. For more information, call 337-9100 or see www.papporestaurant.com.
