On Thursday, November 16th, HALO held its HALO Thanksgiving for our kids at the Tony Aguirre Community Center. Throughout the course of the evening, there was food, fun, and festivities galore. Local volunteers gathered and provided delicious turkey, casserole, and desserts.
After a hearty meal and mingling, our kids went to the adjoining gym to enjoy some basketball, rock climbing, and dance sessions. A “Thanks” Wall with envelopes dedicated to everyone in attendance was set up in the dining hall. In between all the fun, guests were encouraged to write notes to say why they were thankful for those who attended (adults and kids alike). It was lovely seeing the outpouring of love and support as at various points in the night, crowds gathered around the table to color their messages.
At night’s end, everyone gathered their envelope and some leftovers from the feast. It was a special evening.
We at HALO would like to say our thanks to everyone who made the evening possible.
