Thanksgiving Food Drive
Published: November 17, 2014
Dear Grundy Parents,
In the fall of 1621, the corn planted by the Pilgrims was ready for harvest. The fields yielded a bountiful crop that would keep them through the winter. The Pilgrims were full of gratitude for their renewed health, the abundant harvest, and their peace with the Indians. Governor William Bradford declared a day of thanksgiving and invited Chief Massasoit and his people to join them.
Today, nearly 400 years later, we still have much to be thankful for. With Thanksgiving just around the corner, our thoughts turn to those who are less fortunate than we are. As a community service project, we will be conducting a Thanksgiving food drive for Community Harvest Food Pantry (at Trinity Church in Morton) from November 18-25. We are asking Grundy families to donate non-perishable food items. This is an excellent opportunity for our children to learn the true meaning of Thanksgiving. Please give generously.
