Guiding Families Towards Home

Groups Contribute Thanksgiving Baskets to IHN Families

Families in the IHN Home for Good program each recently received a Thanksgiving basket filled with a turkey and all the trimmings, thanks to volunteers from The Winston School in Short Hills, the Junior League of the Oranges and Short Hills, Temple Sholom of West Essex, Saint Paul Baptist Church, and the Saint Philomena Sharing Office.

Baskets included everything from turkeys, to fresh vegetables, home-baked desserts, and corn bread mixes. Each family also received a fleece blanket thanks to Seth Frey who procured them as part of his bar mitzvah project. IHN is grateful for the generosity of each person who played a part in ensuring that IHN parents had everything they needed to celebrate a festive Thanksgiving with their family.

"Thank you to each and every one of you for what you have done for me and my family. When I first came into IHN I knew that we would be moving every week to a different congregation but I had no clue that I would meet such beautiful persons and that my family would have such an impression on anyone when we were feeling like the world was about to come to an end. The hope and love that was shown to us helped us to realize that we were not alone. My experience is not one that I will ever forget."
