We celebrated Thanksgiving with our homeless guests by holding our annual feast. We made changes due to guidelines for COVID-19, which included masks, social distancing, and the absence of volunteers. Our residents in the recovery program cooked 70 turkeys for the feast and also helped to serve. We wanted to continue our tradition of serving restaurant-style, so our staff members, including our president Rolf Geyling, stepped into these roles to make it possible to wait on our guests.
We are thankful for the outpouring of generosity from our donors, who made it possible to offer Thanksgiving meals to our homeless guests. We are looking forward to doing this again in celebration of Christmas!
