Thanksgiving. A Time To Be Grateful, A Time For Sharing

Thanksgiving, A Time To Reflect - A Time For Sharing. Info here!
Serving warm food, warm smiles

Happy Thanksgiving

For most families, Thanksgiving is a time to reflect on everything you’ve been given, and be grateful for all that you have.

This year may again be tough for many of us. But no matter how bad things are looking for you this year, there’s always someone who has it worse. So this year, take the time to give thanks for all that’s good in your own life -- and to give to others who may not share the same good fortune this Thanksgiving.

Help brighten this holiday for someone in need.

  • Donate time or money to a local charity or food pantry
  • Donate a Thanksgiving basket to a neighbor in need
  • Volunteer at a local soup kitchen or homeless shelter
  • Deliver Thanksgiving meals to housebound seniors

Volunteer this Thanksgiving, and share the season!

Have a safe holiday weekend.

Albertina-Kerr is in the process of making changes and additions to their subacute care facility located in the Wilkes East neighborhood.

The changes include the addition of a new building along the east boundary of the campus facing NE 165th St, opening two driveways along NE 165th St, and the future removal of an older building along NE 162nd.

The Wilkes East Neighborhood Association has several unanswered concerns about this project including security (patients and neighbors) as well as the traffic impact to NE 165th and the surrounding areas.
