Every November and December, our meals program participants look forward to a delicious Thanksgiving and Christmas holiday lunch that ushers in the merry season while not skimping out on all the traditional fixings.
This year, we will host three Holiday Special Meals – the day before Thanksgiving, the day of Thanksgiving and one on Christmas Eve. But these meals would not be possible without the help we receive from our generous community partners.
A large volunteer group from Seattle City Light will help serve food and beverages to our men and women. Earlier this month Northwest Harvest donated several turkeys from Foster Farms to be used for all three meals.
“The Thanksgiving lunch service is something special,” says Brent Herrmann, director of programs at the Millionair Club Charity. “Community volunteers set the tables with tablecloths and decorations, and folks have a chance to sit down and be served turkey lunch, followed by pie.”
We also team up with Full Life Care to provide holiday meals for home-bound seniors. Volunteers from the organization arrive early at our building and dish up to-go boxes of turkey, stuffing, cranberry sauce and dessert for older folks who may not have family they can visit.
If you want to support our program participants this holiday season, it’s not too late! We’re looking for donations of butter, celery, stuffing mix and cash to supplement what we already have. Please contact Lindsey Webb at firstname.lastname@example.org if you have any further questions.
