As the leaves begin to turn, La Puente is getting ready for the holidays and needs your help! Each year, La Puente works to ensure that everyone in our community gets to enjoy the holiday by hosting two Thanksgiving events. The first is a Thanksgiving Basket Drive, where La Puente aims to provide a Thanksgiving dinner box to around 600 families across the San Luis Valley! The cost per box is $28.59 and includes everything a family of four will need to have a holiday feast. The distribution will take place on November 23rd. You can donate online at www.lapuentehome.org/thanksgiving or you can mail/ drop off your donation at the Alamosa Food Bank at 513 6th St. Alamosa, CO.
La Puente’s second event is the Community Thanksgiving Meal which will place on November 28th, at La Puente’s Shelter. This meal for over 200 guests is only made possible with the support of community members who donate their time, money, and food. If you would like to be part of this year’s celebration, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org for information. La Puente is proud to serve in such a generous community that cares enough to ensure that we all can enjoy the holiday season.
