Thanksgiving at the Manor
It’s that time of year again and we are so excited to partner with Coastal Community Church to host Thanksgiving at the Manor! Everyone is invited to join us Wednesday, November 24th and 12pm noon to gather with our neighbors and share a wonderful Thanksgiving feast together. If you’d like to donate food–please visit the Sign Up Genius.
Coastal Community Church has been one of our biggest supporters this year and we are thrilled to host Thanksgiving at the Manor with them! Every week, volunteers Karen and Joanne bring hot meals for our residents and the church frequently host cookouts with music, tables and food. We are so grateful for our partnership with them and everything they do!
Importance of Giving
Giving Thursday are always a reminder of the importance of giving but it’s this time of year when you really get into the spirit and remember WHY we give. We give for so many reasons. Some give because they were raised to always share. Some give because they feel they have too much. Some aren’t used to giving and want to–but just don’t know how. No matter what your reason is for giving, when you do–it almost always comes back full circle and tenfold. The joy you experience from touching someone’s life with a simple smile or hot meal permeates throughout every other aspect of your life and you’re left with an overall deeper sense of happiness.
A volunteer with Friends of Joseph Floyd Manor once said, “Sometimes you won’t have the finances to give, so you can donate your time, and sometimes you won’t have any time, but you’ll have the finances, so give money. But no matter what–you should always be giving!” And it’s true–each and every one of us has a unique gift that should not go unused. Each volunteer, donation and social share has helped so many residents this year and we are beyond grateful for your support! We hope everyone can join us for Thanksgiving at the Manor so we can share our gratitude for each other and all we’ve accomplished this year!
