We're getting excited for Thanksgiving at Hope House!
11/18/2015 2:01 PM
Preparation for the holiday season is in full swing at Hope House! That means that staff and residents are getting ready for the food and fun that come with Thanksgiving and Christmas, and we could not be more excited.
This year, staff at the Surgeon's Quarters SRO will start a new tradition by cooking a Thanksgiving dinner for our residents at that facility. Those who are staying at the SRO are looking forward to a Thanksgiving feast with all the fixings. This meal will be even more special because the ingredients have been provided almost entirely by generous donors who wanted to help sponsor the dinner.
Hope House would like to thank board member Dan Schley , Marcee Doherty-Elst and another donor who wished to be made anonymous for donating food for the dinner. We are also grateful for the support of the St. Monica's School class of 1974, which generously donated many of the necessary food items, including two turkeys! These individuals and groups made a huge difference for our residents at the SRO.
Residents at our facility on W. Orchard St. will celebrate Thanksgiving by dining on a world-class meal at Braise Restaurant, which generously donates a Thanksgiving meal for our residents annually.
While we are thankful for the generous support of our donors who supported our Thanksgiving festivities, Hope House will still need gift donations for the families and individuals who will be staying at our facility over the holidays. While we cannot assign donors wish lists from specific families, we can provide a general list of items we need to make sure the holidays are bright for all our residents.
