Thanksgiving Dinner Drive a HUGE Success!
Thanksgiving Dinner Drive a HUGE Success!

Thank you for your support!

Our Lady of Good Counsel (OLGC)'s 5th Annual Thanksgiving Dinner Drive is in the books! This year was tremendous! Once again-we met our goal of providing 100 (actually 101!!) local families of Clearview Elementary School in Herndon, VA with delicious Thanksgiving Dinners. This year we enhanced our family recipes by including fresh fruits, vegetables and dinner rolls too! And of course all dinners included a $25 Walmart gift card for turkeys.

Many of our families support the program every year! Each year they bring it up a notch and the families who received the generous donations were once again totally blown away! But this doesn't happen in a vacuum! This is organized by Meghan Gillespie and her team of volunteers and students, who handled the pre-planning, organization, countless email responses, study sessions to make sure every meal was ticketed, matched, and then loaded up in cars and vans, and driven in rush hour traffic to hand out the dinners. Many of our students and volunteers braved the cold-and carpool line on November 20th to receive the dinners and sell gift cards. We are blessed to be part of such a caring and loving community.

Thank you for your support!
