Public Officials Lend a Helping Hand on Thanksgiving
This year we were thrilled to be joined by many public officials and their staff, who pitched in to make Thanksgiving memorable for our clients. They helped prepare meals in the kitchen and packed them out into festively decorated bags. We needed all the help we could get as this was our biggest Thanksgiving ever! We were joined by Congressman Jerrold Nadler and his staff, as well as representatives from Borough President Gale Brewer’s office and City Council Member Corey Johnson’s office. Theirs was a true gift of public service as they took time away from their own Thanksgiving celebrations to provide a festive experience for their constituents. Thanks to our public officials for making this Thanksgiving special for our clients at God’s Love. We were so pleased that we had the chance to share our urgent mission in action with our representatives, and that they saw firsthand the impact of our work on the lives of so many.
