Helping those in need

For the past 3 years we at Grandma Rose's have been feeding the homeless on Thanksgiving. We provide a traditional meal with all the extras and trimmings for 300 homeless at Church of Ascension in Greenpoint and 300 homeless veterans at the Salvation Army men's shelter in Long Island City. It is deplorable that veterans who have served our nation should end up in such a state. We feel obligated to provide this simple reminder that we give thanks for their service and seek for them a continued place at America's table of plenty.

The meals are prepared and served entirely by volunteer help. The most significant expense is the food of course. Local supermarkets and others have already provided the turkeys (50) and we are seeking additional donations for the rest of the food. We are counting on our family and friends in the community to help us raise the needed funds and make this special time of the year even more for those who have nothing.

God bless you all and thank you for your support!!
