annual thanksgiving dinner
Heights and Hills is preparing for another Thanksgiving! Though conditions around the pandemic have improved, we feel COVID is still a significant consideration and won’t be holding our sit down dinner in Brooklyn Heights. The past two years we have delivered 400 hundred meals to homebound older adults. We have been able to reach more individuals in more of our service area through meal deliveries and will be continuing those deliveries this year.
We understand the in-person Thanksgiving dinner for Brooklyn’s older adults is a special and longstanding tradition for the community and we hope you’ll be able to join us in extending this tradition to more of our wonderful community members. We continue to honor the spirit of this event by focusing our resources on delivering Thanksgiving meals to Heights and Hills’ most vulnerable homebound clients. These older adults are experiencing the chronic challenges of being homebound and isolated day in and day out, and we want to be sure they are not forgotten on a holiday that can be especially difficult for those living alone.
Our organization will continue to collaborate with Grace Church, the Cobble Hill Health Center, and the 84th police precinct to fulfill this wonderful day of service and thanks.
We will need many volunteers to make Thanksgiving Day deliveries on foot and by car. Signing up to volunteer for Heights and Hills is simple! Please fill out one of our online forms, Grace Church Meal Delivery here or Camp Friendship Meal Delivery here, to get more information then sign up for delivery time slots.
We will continue our tradition of accepting pie donations to be included in this year’s meal deliveries. Please sign up here to bake or buy a pie to drop at Grace Church on Wednesday 11/23 from noon to 5pm.
If you are not able to volunteer for Thanksgiving this year, please consider a contribution to support our impactful work. Thank you!
