MANY INDIVIDUALS, GROUPS, AND ORGANIZATION CONTINUE TO PROVIDE THANKSGIVING DINNERS
We hope you are staying safe and healthy. Even though our organization, Whiteaker Community Dinners, is not providing dinner and the great Thanksgiving event at Whiteaker Head Start I heard about many dinners that happened throughout Eugene.
We encourage you to take your past experiences and share them with others. Keep in your hearts the feeling of community, acceptance, and respect for everyone. Check with your friends and neighbors to see if someone could use a friendly dinner possibly delivered.
We are fortunate there are many groups and organizations that provide food and other needed items to people in our community throughout the year. We invite you to support these efforts, just as we of the Board and event coordinators will be looking to provide help as well.
Neighbors Helping Neighbors
Last year we were able to purchase 324 sleeping bags. These were donated to organizations to distribute to the homeless. We plan to purchase 300 sleeping bags again this year. You can donate toward our efforts.
We are continuing our many-year partnership with Windermere Real Estate.
A WARM COAT. A COZY BLANKET
For the less fortunate, these warm items are essential during the winter months.
