Thanksgiving dinners, purchased through Live Thankfully, are given to families selected by our partnering schools’ counselors and administrators.
Each family receives a full meal along with 2 bags of groceries from our packaging party. These families are chosen based on financial, emotional, and physical needs. Our counselors are diligent to follow up with these families throughout the school year. We offer resources and collaborate with other nonprofits to help these families get back on their feet. Meals are received the week of Thanksgiving. Every participating school has teachers and administrators present to give the meal to their adopted families. LT tears down walls of distrust and builds bridges of trust between those in need and those who are able to help and willing to invest in relationships.
