Almost Home is Brighton’s local homeless shelter. Every year, they put together Thanksgiving baskets so that Brighton families in need can have a nice Thanksgiving meal. This year, they will be giving baskets to 300 families. The employees at Platte Valley Medical Center have always been very generous to this program; last year we raised $4,553 and hope to match that donation or surpass it.
Because of donations of fresh produce from local farmers such as Sakata Farms and donations of canned products from churches, schools and individuals, Almost Home can put together a basket for a family of 4 with all the trimmings for around $15 a basket.
As in past years, cash or check are accepted. No donation is too small or too big!
You can give donate two different ways:
1. Drop off monetary donations to Peggy’s office any time between now and November 18th
2. Bring donations to Peggy in the Bistro on Thursday 11/17 from 1-2:30 p.m.
Checks should be made payable to “Almost Home”. Peggy will keep track of the money by department and by individual. Your donation is tax deductible, please let Peggy know if you would like a receipt for tax purposes.
You are the most generous group ever! Let’s see how much we can help the Brighton families! If you have any questions, call Peggy at x 3590.
