Singer Nancy Sinatra is urging fans to donate food to a refuge centre in California ahead of America's Thanksgiving holiday on Thursday (22Nov12).

Frank Sinatra's daughter is calling for aid for the Coachella Valley Rescue Mission, which shelters locals in need, so staff can provide festive food for the homeless.

In a post on her page, she writes, "Friends, this rescue mission doesn't have enough food for the homeless for Thanksgiving. If you can help, please do."
