Humbled. Amazed. Blessed. Thankful. Grateful. These words completely encompass our PWB hearts. We are at a loss of words for the outpouring of love in response we received for the Thanksgiving Boxes for The Place of Forsyth!
Last year we were able to feed 165 families. This year we set our goal for 200 Thanksgiving food boxes. Not only did we meet the box goal, but we also were able to provide turkeys in addition!!! What? Do you feel the love? What’s even crazier is that The Place of Forsyth needed 400 total boxes to be fulfilled and PWB Joy of Hope delivered HALF!!! We bet your turkey dinner will taste so much better this year knowing that you helped provide another family with their Thanksgiving dinner!
There were no shortages on kindness this year! Our hearts are overflowing, and we can’t THANK YOU enough for believing in the Joy of Hope because we couldn’t have accomplished this alone. When we work together, we can do amazing things to help others.
A special shout out to several community partners who helped with this huge endeavor:
