For those of us who have much to be grateful for, Thanksgiving is an excellent time to show our gratitude by giving back and helping pack and distribute food baskets and prepare and serve Thanksgiving meals. Volunteering the day of Thanksgiving is a great to spend the holiday if you don’t have family nearby to stuff your face with. If you’re lucky enough to have a house full of extended family there are plenty of ways you can give back to the community before Turkey arrives.
Thanksgiving is a time that we need to come together with the community to share with those in our city who have little. At the New Orleans Mission, Giving Hope Retreat & Lynhaven Retreat anticipate, as always, hundreds of men, women and families that will be depending on a Thanksgiving meal at there.
Too many are hurting and hungry with little hope in our community. However, for the price of a single hamburger, you can provide a complete Thanksgiving meal! That is a full meal of turkey, mashed potatoes, gravy and all the trimmings, followed by pumpkin pie and coffee for $2.99.
Together you and I can make Thanksgiving a good day for the many men, women, and children that come for a Thanksgiving meal. Help the New Orleans Mission, Giving Hope Retreat & Lynhaven Retreat make this Thanksgiving bring hope to all those hurting as we celebrate what we have to be thankful for.
Please join the New Orleans Mission, Giving Hope Retreat & Lynhaven Retreat.Your support will encourage those that need it most.
May God bless you, and thank you for caring about those less fortunate in our city.
