Volunteer This Thanksgiving Serving Those Less Fortunate in St. Petersburg
The Hounchell family is growing. We’re now a family of four after the birth of our son, along with our daughter, whom couldn’t be more helpful and happy to have a little brother. Chrissy and I are so incredibly fortunate to have each other and ourbeautiful children. Everyone is healthy and life is good.
It’s at these special times of the year when we take time to stop, and consider how thankful we really are for all we have and all we share. Life’s bounties are many, and we look forward to continued good fortune.
This is also a time of year when we stop to consider those less fortunate than ourselves, those for whom there’s not as much, or anything, for which to be thankful.
Our family would like you to consider volunteering your time to provide those less fortunate than ourselves with something to be thankful for this Thanksgiving season.
Each year the St. Petersburg Area Command of The Salvation Army helps hundreds of our Pinellas County neighbors by collecting food, and serving Thanksgiving dinner to individuals and families who cannot afford to do so on their own.
If you’ve never volunteered your time to help others on Thanksgiving, try it. It’s a satisfying, heartwarming experience to become part of a hard working team that fills bellies and hearts, puts smiles on faces, gives good cheer and makes a difference in other’s lives.
From November 18-22, The Salvation Army needs donations of trucks, drivers and loaders to go to schools to pick up and unload food that will be distributed throughout our community to those in need. But their are many other volunteer needs throughout December.
Thanksgiving is November 28. The Salvation Army is also looking for volunteers to help prepare, set-up, serve and cleanup after the annual Community Thanksgiving Dinner. Meal times are 2-4 p.m.
Consider taking just a few hours of your Thanksgiving Day to make our community part of your family by helping make the day one of thanks for them as well
