Every November families all around this country make plans, purchase airline tickets, and begin counting the days until Thanksgiving. A time of love, family, and above all – giving thanks.
As men and women of faith, we believe that truly being thankful for all that we have been given is much easier for those of us who have been blessed to be given so much. But those that have worked with homeless, downtrodden, and impoverished people know otherwise. Often, those among us with little or nothing to their names demonstrate tremendous gratitude for everything that they are given, especially appreciating that they are only given anything through God’s grace and our love.
It is in that spirit that we want to share the joy of Thanksgiving every month with those among us who are less fortunate. In addition to caring for their bodies by feeding them, we want to show our gratitude for their lives, their spirits, and their appreciation of all that they have. These men, women, and children deserve to celebrate what they have been given; it is with deepest thanks that those of us who are more fortunate, are able to give them the means to celebrate Thanksgiving. Food, companionship, and celebration await these individuals and families.
At an event, we seek to meet the needs of homeless men, women, and children, we give out hygiene kits, free haircuts, blankets and whatever is requested to better assist them in their time of need. All donation we receive we use it to purchase supplies and better equip us for the task at hand.
Should you wish to become involved and share your day of thanks or any of the days leading up to it with our Team or with these homeless and impoverished individuals, contact us now.

But whoever has the world’s goods, and beholds his brother in need and closes his heart against him, how does the love of God abide in him?
