Korean American communities around the country found Thanksgiving the perfect holiday for goodwill.

In New York, a grocers’ association provided free turkey meals to local Korean elderly on Wednesday.

Inside senior centers in Flushing and Corona, as well as the Korean Community Services building, 1,000 meals were given to seniors.

On the opposite coast, a Silicon Valley volunteer organization invited its members and locals to join in on a holiday luncheon Tuesday.

About 120 locals came out to enjoy food inside Silicon Valley Korean American Community Services.
