Thanksgiving is a very special day in many ways. It is not a religious, patriotic or commercial holiday, but rather a time for families to gather over a special meal and count the blessings in their lives. While this year looked different for so many, the local families that HomeFront serves who are homeless or very low-income were especially thankful. Thankful to have a safe place to sleep at night, to have food on their table – and grateful for our caring community.
For the past 30 years HomeFront has called on all of you to provide these families with baskets filled with all the ingredients for a wonderful celebration. The response has been overwhelming, and this year was no exception. Donors even included gift cards for turkeys, Thanksgiving decorations and groceries for the following week.
On behalf of all the families who were blessed with a very special meal we thank all the individuals, congregations and corporations who made it possible, and hope their Thanksgivings were equally special.
