This year, CAPCO Resource Center was fortunate enough to have the help of Paterson’s own St. Luke Baptist Church in providing Thanksgiving dinners for 20 of our clients in need and their families. Parishioners at St. Luke created bags of canned goods and other dry foods, including stuffing, green beans, cranberry sauce, sweet potatoes, and cake mix to be distributed to CAPCO clients in need for the upcoming holiday. In addition, each client received a whole turkey courtesy of St. Luke Baptist!
CAPCO staff and volunteers spent one day this week picking up the donations and bringing them into the CAPCO office to make sure they were all ready for our clients to receive them. They definitely got their exercise in before the Thanksgiving holiday! But besides the physical exercise, this experience also exercised our staff’s and volunteers’ hearts, reminding them of the reason for the season: gratitude, thankfulness, and spending time with the people we each care about.
From everyone here at CAPCO Resource Center, happy Thanksgiving! We hope that all of our clients, supporters, friends, and family enjoy a day full of joy and gratitude spent with loved ones.
