Happy Thanksgiving!

We're approaching the half-way point for Holiday Helpings 2009. And we've already distributed over 5,000 holiday meals — a turkey with all the trimmings — to DC's most vulnerable residents, offering these families the opportunity to enjoy their celebratory meal in the dignity of their own homes.

We had the pleasure of hosting both Leon Harris (ABC-7) and Cokie Roberts (NPR) at our Northwest center. Enjoy the highlight video developed by Bread for the City's own Amy Johnson!

It is important to remember that Holiday Helpings extends beyond the Thanksgiving holiday through December 24. So although 5,000 healthful, holiday meals is impressive, we still have another 3,500 to go to reach our goal. The best part is that it's not too late to get involved! Just $28 will bring Holiday Helpings to a family of four. This Thanksgiving, show your gratitude for all that you have by giving back to those who need it most.
