A Thanksgiving Gift
Over the past several years a tradition has started in the Project READ community. Each Thanksgiving a long-time volunteer tutor and Project READ supporter donates Thanksgiving dinners to Project READ families in need. What began as one amazingly kind gesture has become a long-anticipated and much appreciated event that has helped hundreds of families bring a nourishing dinner home for Thanksgiving. This gift to our community has inspired many over the years. This year, we our so pleased to share that this generous act of kindness from one person was matched by another. Encouraged by the hope this food brings, another Project READ volunteer joined in this donation effort. Together, these two supporters have donated over $10,000 to help bring Thanksgiving dinner to 130 Project READ families. With the help of Second Harvest of Silicon Valley, gracious donations and community volunteers, staff was able to distribute turkeys, fresh vegetables, side dishes and even pumpkin pies to all 130 families. This is truly something to be thankful for.
Thank you to our generous supporters who make this possible each year, our community partners, tutors, volunteers and families. Happy Thanksgiving to you all!
