A few local businesses will come together from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. Saturday at 120 Breen Ave. to host a chicken barbecue and car wash benefit for the Watertown Urban Mission.
The event also will double as a food and winter supply drive to help the nonprofit plan for organizing traditional Thanksgiving meals for needy north country families. Nonperishable food, frozen turkeys, frozen hams and frozen chickens are requested, as are winter wear items such as coats, scarves, gloves and boots.
During the benefit, a hamburger or hot dog, chips and a soda will be available for $3, and any donation will be accepted for the car wash.
According to the missions Facebook page, the event is sponsored by Cutting Edge Lawn Care & Snow Removal, Neat & Tidy Cleaning Service and Mamas Lil Shop of Treasures.
