Thanks to the support and dedication of HALO's volunteers and supporters, we can bring the foundation of a family to HALO youth during the holiday season. Please join us in celebrating our November volunteers of the month that helped make HALO Thanksgiving possible.
Kansas City Volunteers of the Month: Bob Daum, Katie Ketel, Olivia Pikul, Trevor Gorges, Todd Lowenstein, Valerie Morrill, Thuy U, Leslie de Santiago, Eshi Wickramasundara, Advocate Board Members, Courtney Filing, Lori Lewellen, Holly Mihalovich, Jen Call and their kids, along with other Advocate Board members kids.
In Jefferson City we were truly in awe of the generosity of volunteers who cooked incredible food for our HALO kids. We had the most delicious meal, every bit of which was donated by HALO supporters. Our kids were able to eat their fill and take to-go containers home to enjoy leftovers with their family.
It is always so special to gather around the table with HALO youth and alumni and enjoy just being together.
We celebrated Thanksgiving with new HALO faces, and even helped a few HALO babies enjoy their first feast as best we know how, with lots and lots of tasty treats!
After dinner, we colored, played games, spoke about what we were thankful for, and of course had some friendly games of basketball.
Special thanks to every single person who made and delivered food, or took the time to serve our HALO youth. You made this a very special Thanksgiving for our kids. We hope they always know they have a community of love supporting them, and believing they deserve beautiful moments, and the foundation of a family.
