Kidz Grub is providing 800+ At-Risk Children Thanksgiving meals!
Kidz Grub provides meals and support to At-Risk Children in the Greater Houston Area on a daily basis. The programs run Monday thru Friday –all year long. Tomorrow, being Thanksgiving, the sites are not going to be open. With this in mind, today Kidz Grub is providing a Thanksgiving treat. Though this Thanksgiving bounty may be a day early, bear in mind that many of the kids we support and work with will not have a traditional Thanksgiving meal tomorrow.
For today’s meal we wanted to provide each child with a Thanksgiving feast of their own. On the menu today for each of our active programs and sites we have prepared a healthy meal of chicken legs and stuffing (don’t forget the gravy), a side of corn, muffins and apples. Of course we have included the usual beverage of preference… milk.
Kidz Grub would like to wish you all a happy Thanksgiving. We hope that our efforts will help each of the children to have a better and happy Thanksgiving also. Now it’s getting close to time in order to figure out what Christmas dinner will be. If you would like to assist us with Christmas meals or any of our daily programs please visit the contact and information pages on our website at http://kidzgrub.org . Thank you.
