Feast for the tummy and soul: At-risk kids earn Thanksgiving dinners for their families
By Greg Hardesty-Behind the Badge
The sixth-grader has an older brother in a street gang.
He also has a delicious Thanksgiving dinner staring him in the face.
His brother, 19, is a source of great concern for his parents.
The meal, which his parents also enjoyed, is a reward the kid received for not doing stuff that could send him down the same sad and destructive path his brother chose to follow.
On Wednesday, Nov. 18, Juan Ugalde, 11, and his parents, Simon and Silvia, dug into that meal in a multipurpose room at Topaz Elementary School in Fullerton.
Juan was one of 10 students at Topaz to get an early taste of Thanksgiving.
