November 10th Update: Thanksgiving at Home Program Crowdfund Campaign
At 102% funded and with 18 days left in our Thanksgiving Turkeys for Families campaign, we feel so grateful for the outpouring of love and generosity! We can’t express fully our thanks in mere words. To all who have contributed in dollars, energy and caring please know that beyond the nutritional benefits of this effort lies the hope and dignity that your generosity inspires in the lives and hearts of the families blessed by your love offerings. Here at Emmaus House we know that receiving thanks for our efforts is inherent in the giving... to give is to receive. The generosity of loving hearts makes this realization possible. It is one thing to feel satisfaction from one's efforts at reaching a goal. But it’s overwhelming when that goal is inspired by the love, selflessness, and generosity of so many people.
Thanks to you, our Thanksgiving Turkeys for Families program will distribute the ingredients for a complete Thanksgiving Day Feast to 350 families so they can prepare their own home cooked family meals. Thank you, everyone, so much! A happy Thanksgiving to one and all!
Even though we have reached our goal, we will still accept donations. Many people in Peoplestown need nutritious food. Whatever we receive will go towards providing food to those who need it this holiday season. If you would still like to contribute, please do so at https://www.indiegogo.com/projects/thanksgiving-turkeys-for-families. Thank you.
If you would like to contribute directly with canned goods or your time and energy contact Ann Fowler at firstname.lastname@example.org or 404-523-2856 ext. 25.
If you would like to contribute your time and energy in other ways this holiday season, please contact us. We are coordinating several holiday programs about which you can learn more at http://www.emmaushouseatlanta.org/volunteer/
‘Tis the season... to receive through our giving.
