When you think of your favorite Thanksgiving treats, things like “grandma’s stuffing” or “my mom’s green beans” might come to mind. But what makes those treats so tasty isn’t just the food, but enjoying them around the table WITH your grandmother, parents, cousins and other friends and loved ones.
For just $35 you can help make sure other families in your community get to enjoy those traditions and make memories with their loved ones as well.
Aurora Family Service has a goal of providing a full Thanksgiving meal to 3,100 local families. You can help people like Annie, who told us last year she was “thankful to be alive” and “thankful that God provided me a Thanksgiving meal”.
Or people like Ruth, who had recently lost her home, her financial problems were growing and she was feeling very distraught. Ruth reached out to a financial counselor at Aurora Family Service who provided assistance in a time of dire need. She also made sure Ruth received a Thanksgiving meal. “I felt despondent, but that particular year it sure made me feel grateful. It made a great big difference in my life that I was able to provide a Thanksgiving meal to my family,” Ruth said.
Here’s what your $35 helps provide: a 12-pound turkey, bread, butter, potatoes, stuffing, vegetables and fruit.
You helped create a special Thanksgiving memory for over 3,000 families last year and you can do it again this year!
