Thanksgiving day, a large group of volunteers from neighboring communities got together to give thanks by reaching out to others in need – including a number of veterans who served our country protecting our freedom. The event was sponsored by a local charity called “One Common Thread” – a unique organization that strives to help those with hardships through unified community effort.
43 complete Thanksgiving dinners were prepared and delivered throughout Rockland, including the Homes For Heroes on Western Highway in Tappan. The veterans were so appreciative, and the volunteers were equally as appreciative of the sacrifices made by these brave men. It was a day of humility and gratitude for all, which is the true meaning of the holiday!
On behalf of our former homeless Veterans, I offer the profound gratitude of our Not-For-Profit Charity on Western Highway in Tappan. God bless you.
