Valley's Annual Client Thanksgiving Meal Another Success
November 21st, 2012
Valley hosted its 24th Annual Thanksgiving Dinner for clients and staff on Friday, November the 16th at the main office on Scott Avenue. Staff and volunteers served nearly 600 meals over a three hour period which included approximately 200 takeout meals for those who could not get into the center.
This annual event involves a great deal of preparation work and the committee enlists the support of staff and some community volunteers for the overall success of the event. Many vendors, community leaders, businesses and other partners with valley contributed generously in the form of food, and cash donations, as well as their time.
For many of the clients that attend this meal it's the only Thanksgiving dinner meal they will have and they get to share this in the company of other clients and friends. Their appreciation is obvious and they linger, talk and enjoy the time in the spirit of the holiday.
Valley wants to thank all of those staff, businesses and volunteers who gave so generously of their time and effort to make this annual dinner event the truly special time it has come to be, year in and year out.
