Annual Turkey and Ham Drop
Happy Thanksgiving! These were the words heard most often last Saturday at our Annual Turkey and Ham Drop at Queen of Peace Residence. The day was initially sunny and mild and our friends and benefactors made the effort to visit our Home to donate Turkeys and Hams. Although we had to observe our socially distant protocols, the Sisters were still able to be outside and say thank you for the sacrifices made by so many to support our Home.
A big plus this year was that our Auxiliary Committee was able to join us for the event make sure everything ran smoothly. The Auxiliary Committee members are true Ambassadors of the Mission of the Little Sisters.
This year saw the return of our homemade hot chocolate and cookies! The opportunity to see our friends and benefactors and to be able to say “thank you” and “Happy Thanksgiving” was a wonderful experience for us. Thank you!
The generosity demonstrated on Saturday was tremendous. The Little Sisters and our Residents are so grateful and humbled by the generosity of those who came and donated so many turkeys and hams for our Home for use throughout the year.
A special shout out to the New Hyde Park Knights of Columbus and Columbiettes Council #2852 who arranged for a three-parish caravan of donations to our Home! We love our loyal Knights and Columbiettes.
Thank you to all who joined us on Saturday. God Bless you all.
We wish everyone a very Happy Thanksgiving spent with those you love, while staying safe.
