Ahhhhhhhhh…Thanksgiving. Everybody’s favorite holiday, right? The food, the family–and no presents to buy!
Although some whippersnappers are trying things like duck and tofurkey as alternatives to the traditional bird, pretty much everyone knows that Thanksgiving means turkey and all the trimmings: cranberries, mashed potatoes, green beans (tell me in the comments why you do, or don’t, do the whole green bean casserole in your family), stuffing and pumpkin pie. Ohmigosh, I feel full just thinking about it all!
But what if your family wasn’t fortunate enough to have a Thanksgiving table full of holiday delights? What would you do? Many people here in the Valley turn to Phoenix Rescue Mission. You can help their efforts to provide Thanksgiving food boxes for up to 1,500 families this year, by attending Frozen Turkey Sunday!
On November 8, from 11 am – 3 pm, the Phoenix Rescue Mission will host an Open House which includes a free BBQ lunch, a tour of their newly renovated Community Services Center, and musical entertainment for families dropping off a frozen turkey.
My kids and I have visited Phoenix Rescue Mission on several occasions to volunteer in a variety of ways: we brought popsicles one summer day and handed them out after lunch, we’ve helped sort their donation warehouse, and we’ve organized an Easter Basket drive at our church. Frozen Turkey Sunday sounds like a great new Thanksgiving tradition for us…and we hope to see you there!
