Why help Family to Family Thanksgiving? Just ask Yvonne.

Yvonne Dixon and grandchildrenHow can your donation make a difference this Thanksgiving?

Just ask Yvonne Dixson of Milwaukee. Her grandchildren depend on her and she shared that money is tight.

When Yvonne and her five grandchildren came together to pick up their groceries at last year Family to Family event, she was overjoyed.

“It’s wonderful,” said Yvonne. “It allows us to have a real Thanksgiving together.”

You can help strengthen family traditions and bring more families together this Thanksgiving over a holiday meal when you donate to Family to Family Thanksgiving. Make a gift of any size and you can help families in our community come together. Visit give.aurora.org/thanksgiving.
