Thanksmas – The Pinks Give Back
19th Nov 2016
In lieu of holding a holiday event where we exchange gifts with each other, this year the LA Pink Dragons decided to have a “Thanksmas”…a combo holiday potluck event where we shared our food with each other, as well as assembled gift bags for those in need in the Long Beach area.
Note the words of our team Captain below, as she described our first Thanksmas:
“I wanted to update you all on the “Thankmas” event held last Saturday. Monday morning, my husband and I went to the Women’s Shelter Long Beach (WSLB) main office and deposited 45 very large, very full bags of goodies. I cannot tell you how overwhelmed and thankful Tatiana (associate director) was to receive these donations. She assured me that her 300+ women clients and their children would be forever grateful. There were many hugs shared all around.
I had no doubt that this team would take this project and run full steam ahead, you did not disappoint. It was a very rewarding experience for me personally to see you all come together for the good of others. Your love and generosity astounds me. Job well done.”
We had fun with each other, participated in a Silent Auction, and more importantly gave back to those in need around us. We have much to be thankful for this year.
