For the last 15 years, continued through warm hearts and selflessness, agents of the Wall Street office have had the privilege of providing Thanksgiving groceries to families in need. The organization that makes this possible is ChildHaven, a 501(c)(3) organization founded in 1909 to heal families and children and stop the cycle of abuse and neglect.
This year we were humbled to lend a hand to 15 families in need. By providing all of the items necessary to make a wonderful Thanksgiving meal, nearly 140 people (children, parents, grandparents, and aunts and uncles) were able to commune with one another over their truly home-cooked meal.
We would like to give a special thank you to the QFC on lower Queen Anne who helped facilitate the food shopping experience. General Manager, Christopher Randish, Produce Manager, Jeremiah Kelly, and their team made the experience effortless by having items arranged, boxed, and nearly ready to go when we showed up at 8:00 am. Everything went smoothly with their generous help.
We were so grateful to be able to touch the lives of so many families this year and will continue to look forward to the next opportunity to reach out to our community to provide what we can. We also had a lot of fun. Happy Thanksgiving, everyone!
