As tears of joy and gratitude welled up inside, Tina, a single mom of three kids, expressed her immense pleasure and gratefulness. Why was she so grateful? Well, you see, it had been many years since she had been able to serve and enjoy a complete Thanksgiving meal with her children on Thanksgiving Day. As she gathered the children around her table, loaded with a scrumptious-looking roasted turkey and all the trimmings, Tina reminded her children that God had not forgotten them. He had sent people who cared and thought of them this holiday season. She states, “This year we ate like kings and queens. This Thanksgiving, it is YOU we are thankful for!”
Tina is only one single mom of the hundreds who received much needed help and encouragement this Thanksgiving season. Our team of dedicated and wonderful volunteers felt honored to give out turkeys, grocery bags, hugs and smiles.
This Thanksgiving, we were honored to provide turkeys and all the trimmings to feed approximately 1,200 individuals in need. Additionally, the single moms also had the chance to “shop for free” in our fabulous, well-stocked Clothing Boutique. Cool weather clothing, shoes, purses, and much more were available to bless all those who participated.
Maureen wrote, “Thank you for the invitation to the Thanksgiving Event. I had nowhere else to turn and I am truly and sincerely grateful for keeping me on the list and providing for me and my family. I would be completely without anything if it were not for your generosity.”
God used you, our faithful donors, to show His love, care, and compassion to those in need. Your very generous and gracious donations of food and clothing made it possible for Sheridan House to not only meet physical needs, but more importantly, to share the gift of hope with our single moms.
