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!
Doing a lot of frying this Thanksgiving? New Seasons Market is launching a program to turn leftover Thanksgiving cooking oil into clean biofuel, and raise money for Meals on Wheels at the same time.
In partnership with SeQuential Pacific Biodiesel, New Seasons Market, 1954 SE Division St, Portland (Ladd's Addition), is offering a environmentally friendly way to dispose of kitchen grease after the holiday. As a bonus, SeQuential Pacific will donate $1 to New Season’s Meals on Wheels campaign for every gallon of cooking oil collected.
It's Parade Day!

Kids of ages are welcome! The Haunted Forest at Glendoveer Golf Course, sponsored by Umpqua Bank, will have a trick-or-treat path for kids to venture down, stopping at various tables along the way to collect candy. Tables will be run by local businesses around the Portland-Metro area.
Once the trick-or-treat path is completed, kids will participate in a Laser Tag game courtesy of GameTruck LaserTag then continue down to the “Haunted Driving Range”. Upon entering the driving range, kids will have to make their way through all the cobwebs while trying to dodge ghouls and ghosts to get to a hitting spot. From there the kids will receive a golf club and tee off with a few glow-in-the dark golf balls at the GIANT ghost floating around the field.
Glendoveer Golf and Tennis wants to provide the community with a dry, safe, and fun place to get candy and participate in a few activities. Kids of all ages are welcome; Costumes are highly encouraged!(Please note: Glendoveer staff will not scare children as part of the haunted forest theme).
