Carlsbad CA— Nearly 300 children were treated to a Thanksgiving holiday feast thanks to the generosity of a cadre of caring volunteers who gave everything from turkeys to mashed potatoes to the gift of their time in serving the youngsters.
In addition to the opportunity to eat a delicious meal and have quality conversations with friends, each member was encouraged to let the artist within come out by decorating their own signature Thanksgiving placemat.
The hallmark of the event was a 6-foot tall paper mache “Thanksfulness Tree,” which was created by staff and members. Each and every Club member wrote what they were thankful for on a leaf, and hung it on the tree.
