Feast of Giving 2017
We are pleased to announce that The Feast of Giving 2017 event was a success! Event highlights include:
·Over 100 volunteers participated in the event.
· 760 families received a frozen turkey and all the ingredients needed for a full Thanksgiving meal.
·Another 500 families received gift cards to obtain a turkey from a local supermarket as well as a basket with all the ingredients needed to prepare a Thanksgiving meal.
·In total HACER helped 1,260 families enjoy a bountiful Thanksgiving dinner.
We are very grateful for all the volunteers who participated in the event- you are the true heroes in our community! We are also grateful for the support of the Palm Beach County Sheriff Department, the Harrington Foundation, the BallenIsles Charitable Foundation, and others who helped make this event a reality. Representatives from the Sheriff Department participated in the event and graciously greeted children and families, making everyone feel welcome (welcomed).
HACER is already preparing for our next Feast of Giving event. We remain grateful to our volunteers and donors, whose dedication and enthusiasm make this wonderful event possible. This year's event will take place on November 14, 2018. We expect this event to be the best ever! We are planning to serve over 1,300 families- our goal is to have each family receive a turkey (along with the ingredients to create a full Thanksgiving meal) to take home with them.
HACER is ready, the volunteers are ready, and the community is ready. Are you ready to help? We are asking for donations to help us provide an abundant and memorable Thanksgiving for families in need- a day that will live in their memories forever. We are asking you to be part of those memories. Please contribute at http://www.hacerus.org/how-to-help.html.
Your tax-deductible contribution will help strengthen families by bringing them together this Thanksgiving. From all of us at HACER-thank you!
