Gratitude has several mental health benefits. When you feel the positive emotion of being grateful, it is beneficial to respond to others with kindness, warmth and generosity. One great way to do this is to help others in our communities who struggle everyday to put food on their tables. This Thanksgiving, Hope & Friendship Foundation would appreciate your help in putting a turkey dinner on the table for those who would struggle to afford it with “The Day the Turkeys Fly” event. Donations of non-perishable food items can be made at our Counseling Works locations or on November 17th, 10am at the Public Works Garage, 16680 New Avenue in Lemont. Financial donations are also welcome.
