Feeling Thankful This October
Earlier this month, Turning Leaf hosted a Thanksgiving lunch for our participants at the Sturgeon Heights Community Centre. We had so much to be thankful for this year, especially the people in our lives for whom we care and care for us. It was an amazing event filled with family, good friends and of course, good food.
Of course, we’re also incredibly thankful for our staff and the amazing volunteers who took time out of their day to make sure someone else’s day was perfect.
It goes without saying, this day was only possible because of the generous people like you who donated and sponsored the event. Your support means everything to us. You give us a reason to be thankful, to be hopeful for a future that can hold such promise and opportunity.
You donated a host of food (turkey, ham, and all the extras), plates, pies (both apple and pumpkin!) and beverages.
We’d like to give a big thanks to the following sponsors for helping make the day such a success:
- Sobeys – Kenaston
- Sobeys – St.Anne’s
- Sobeys Extra – Pembina
- Sobeys – Unicity
- Tasse’s Balkan Foods
- Naida Communications Inc.
Also, thank you to the individual donors who contributed to the event.
Thankful for the meal they received, all our participants wanted to give back by the end of the lunch. So, they pinned their well wishes to the Thankful Tree, giving thanks to everyone for putting on such a special day.
