In 2016 we started a new project to provide Thanksgiving dinner to a local family. Members of the Livonia Jaycees gathered on November 17, 2016 and celebrated Thanksgiving as a group at our Friendsgiving dinner. Each attendee was asked to bring a prepared dish along with the recipe and non-perishable food items to go with it. The recipe, non-perishable food items, gift cards, a turkey, and other donations were then given to a local family so that they would be able to enjoy Thanksgiving dinner.
We are hoping to expand this project in 2017 by inviting more community members to the event and receiving sponsorships so that we can provide meals to more families within the Livonia Community. The event will be held on Thursday, November 16th. Stay tuned for more details.
