Celebrating Thanksgiving by Giving Back
November 18, 2022
While the year–and the market– has been rather tumultuous, we have so much to be grateful for this Thanksgiving. We look forward to spending the holiday with our families and loved ones, enjoying a delicious meal and making holiday memories that will last through generations. As we prepare to share this beautiful holiday with family and friends, we are reminded that not everyone is fortunate enough to have family ties nearby or the ability to be part of a warm welcoming celebration; for this, we support Citymeals-on-Wheels each year.
Founded in 1981 by Gael Greene and James Beard, Citymeals-on-Wheels is a nonprofit organization that raises private funds to ensure that no homebound elderly New Yorker goes without food or human company. In its first year, the program was able to provide 35,000 Christmas dinners, and it currently serves over 2 million meals annually. Nearly 19,000 volunteers collectively will spend over 52,000 hours this year making meal deliveries and providing companionship to homebound elderly, helping make Thanksgiving, the holiday season, and every day better for elderly New Yorkers in need.
We are constantly touched by the generosity of our clients and colleagues who support so many worthy causes, and we are inspired by all to share our corporate success with others. We hope you have a wonderful holiday season with family and friends, and we wish you a very Happy Thanksgiving!
